WESTFIELD CENTER, OHIO--(Marketwire - May 17, 2011) - Westfield Insurance, one of the nation's 50 largest property and casualty insurance carriers, will be exhibiting at booth #3061 at the National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show®, May 21-24, 2011, at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Westfield is attending on behalf of the Westfield Signature Series®, a specialized line of commercial insurance products with hospitality insurance programs designed to protect the unique risk exposures of restaurants, hotels and golf courses.

"Attendance at the NRA show is a great opportunity for us to further connect with the hospitality industry, and ensure we continue to have a deep understanding of its challenges and needs," said Nicole Granata, research and development leader at Westfield Insurance.

Westfield Insurance has first-hand experience owning and self-operating several hospitality businesses, including à la carte dining, catering and corporate food service operations, a highly acclaimed small luxury inn and two 18-hole championship golf courses.
