The Destination | Rio de Janeiro, Brazil  

After successfully hosting the 2007 Pan American Games, Rio was selected as the host city of the 2016 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Olympic committee had great reason to choose Rio as the first Latin American city to host the largest sporting event in the world! Rio is a dynamic, majestic and unique city. 


What’s happening in Rio

While many state-of-the art stadiums exist, construction for additional world-class facilities and the Olympic Village are well underway. A high-performance train will connect the venue centers clustered in Copacabana, Maracanã, Deodoro, and Barra – home to the Celebration Club host hotels. Throughout the coming months you will receive ongoing newsletters with updates on the Celebration Club VIP program, what’s happening in Rio, as well additional enhancements that we are securing exclusively for our VIP's.
