Alex Găvan’s inspiring press conference on the Broad Peak experience

“The mountain has its own way, each time, of making possible a special encounter with oneself. It's what you choose to make out of it that matters,” said Alex Găvan in a friendly, yet inspiring atmosphere, presenting the Broad Peak summit movie and experience.

We were proud to organize the press conference that took place on August 12, 2014 at the Impact Hub Bucharest and to manage the communication and media relations for the event, as for the whole Broad Peak expedition. Oana Marinescu, Managing Director of OMA Vision also moderated Alex Găvan’s press conference. Alex was joined by his leading partners, who have been supporting him since the first ascent of an 8000-er, in 2006: Liviu Dragan, CEO TotalSoft; Eugen Voicu, Founder Certinvest; Razvan Pasol, Chairman Intercapital Invest.

Alex talked about the experience of climbing the Broad Peak without supplementary oxygen and high altitude porters and about the reasons why he dedicated the Broad Peak ascent to the anti-communist fighters. Alex Gavan’s success benefitted from an impressive coverage on the most important Romanian blogs, publications, TV and Radio Channels.

Climber Alex Găvan, one of Romania’s top performers at high altitude, topped out on July 23, 2014 the Broad Peak summit (8047m) in the Karakoram range, Pakistan, without supplementary oxigen or High Altitude Porters’ support. This is the sixth 8000m summit he has climbed in his sportsman career, all ascents being achieved without supplementary oxygen and without High Altitude Porters or Sherpa support.

OMA VISION supports Alex Găvan’s inspiring activity contributing with the PR and communication strategy for his expeditions, his motivational speaking engagements and for wider projects.
