June 26 is Global Day of Discovery at Renaissance Hotels worldwide

Renaissance Hotels will host its third annual Global Day of Discovery on June 26 at more than 150 of its hotels around the world. On this day, nearly every Renaissance Hotel will celebrate by offering both hotel guests and the local community the opportunity to get out and discover something new by hosting exclusive musical, culinary, art or culturally focused events and unique local excursions designed by hotel Navigators to showcase the unique stories of each destination. 

The Day of Discovery celebration officially kicks off Renaissance Hotels' Summer of Discovery calendar, a summer-long programme of exclusive events at all 157 hotels around the world designed to help travelers experience the best discoveries of the season.

"We make a promise to our hotel guests that every time they step into a Renaissance Hotel they are inspired to discover and experience something new and meaningful," said Toni Stoeckl, Vice President for Renaissance Hotels. "Celebrating our Global Day of Discovery is just one way that we encourage guests to Live Life to Discover by inspiring travelers and locals to make the most of their time in a destination by visiting a new local art gallery or listening to an emerging musician perform in one of our hotel lobbies."

A sampling of events taking place on June 26 includes:

Soccer at the Renaissance Beijing Capital Hotel. There will be a mini competition during an outside BBQ with live music and live viewing of soccer games to compete for fabulous prizes.
