    What do you mean "more closely to the date"? What date are you talking about? Do you mean that you want to be in touch before summer 2017? Jul 4, 2016 at 8:33

I'm going to assume you tried to look up touch, but the sentence still didn't make sense.

The idiom in this case is be in touch.

be in touch

  • to have regular communication with someone by telephone, letter etc. (usually + with ) [1.]
  • to see, speak to, or write to someone [2.]

So let's be in touch summer 2017 essentially means let's talk in summer 2017.

Well, if it's job related, and you want to say that you will speak around summer 2017, then you could say

  1. We'll be in touch.
  2. I have your number/email/info/etc.
  3. I look forward to to speaking with you again.
  4. I will (talk to you)/(contact you) then.

Option 2. implies that you will contact this person in the future.
