The campaign features an online contest with a chance to win a trip around the globe with stays at the Radisson Blu hotels of your choice, as well as highlights a variety of original summer offers at Radisson Blu hotels at home and abroad.

To enter the “Turn Your World Blu” (http://www.contest.radissonblu.com) online contest, visitors are asked to identify the perfect places and things they most wish to do on a dream vacation. From “Blu skies, sun and beaches” to “The Blu period: art & museums” to “New Blu you: learning hot new skills,” choices highlight the wide variety of experiences possible at Radisson Blu hotels.
