The Association for Healthcare Foodservice’s Annual Conference is the industry-leading conference for self-operated foodservice professionals and business partners. AHF is the only national organization focused specifically on furthering the interests of facilities and operators who are self-operated. As a non-profit organization all our funds go back into programs and products for your benefit.

Participants can expect to join AHF for unique conference sessions focused on industry trends, COVID-19’s impact on healthcare foodservice, and new ways to ignite your excellence.

For the first time, AHF will take their Annual Conference online, in a virtual format! That means, AHF registrants will be able to participate from any convenient location, at any time, on any device. AHF is pleased to offer impactful educational sessions with CEU credits and opportunities to network online with like-minded colleagues and business partners. This new platform allows our self-operated community to build new relationships, as well as connect with existing colleagues or clients. Our conferences are uniquely tailored operators in self-operated facilities in acute care, senior dining, and senior living. You work all year taking care of patients, meeting the needs of your facility and employees. Join us at AHF 2020, and let us take care of you.

What’s included? Nearly everything! All of your educational sessions (live and recorded), virtual exhibit hall, and virtual networking breaks  are all covered by your registration fee. Registration will be opening soon!
