Renaissance Hotels prides themselves on bringing cultural experiences to business travelers, they’ve just announced their partnership with Food & Wine’s Andrew Zimmern (the host of Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods show) and will be the official hotel partner for two upcoming festivals.

The festivals are –

Chicago Food + Wine Festival (August 28-30, 2015)
Nashville’s Music City Food + Wine Festival (September 19-20, 2015)

Special guests at the Navigator’s Table held at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel on Friday August 28, 2015 include Christina Grdovic, Senior VP and Publisher of FOOD & WINE, TV Personality and Restauranteur, Bill Dec, and Lee Wolen, Executive Chef/Partner. Andrew Zimmern will also be at the Navigator’s Table. Attending guests will get to taste unconventional (bizarre) flavor pairings created by Mr. Zimmern.

At the festival, Renaissance Hotels will have a tent called “Discover Chicago” which will have food and prize giveaways.

RenHotels.com and Renaissance Hotels’ YouTube channel will air videos from the event for those who aren’t attending.
