Become a Virtual Sponsor

The healthcare foodservice industry is estimated to spend $12 billion annually on food and beverage products alone. When you add equipment, technology,  and service spends into the mix the number grows exponentially. Not only is the healthcare foodservice market growing, but the portion of that market belonging to self-operated facilities is also growing.

Who is AHF?

AHF is an organization built to support and further self-operated facilities. Our members are directors, managers, chefs, administrators, educators, and other industry leaders and their facilities. AHF institutional members include single to multi-site facilities with locations all across the country. AHF has both acute care and long term care as members including hospitals and senior living facilities. Facility sizes range from smaller (0-50) bed locations to larger (451+) bed locations.

Who Should Sponsor? Business partners in the foodservice, distribution, technology, software, equipment, and consulting services fields are encouraged to join AHF.

2020 Virtual & Annual Opportunities
Why it’s important to stay connected virtually in 2020

AHF’s conference will be a fun, exciting, way for our operators to stay connected and gain critical CEU’s during a unique moment in history. While many conferences have gone virtual, AHF’s members have been busy and for many this will be their first chance for some post-pandemic education and networking with their team.

AHF virtual conference will span 4 weeks beginning in August with a mix of live and recorded sessions. Some of those sessions may be developed and hosted by you (see below)! Members will access 12+ hours (likely more) of content through an online learning platform and our virtual conference portal where they can self-pace their learning, while also joining key live sessions, round tables, virtual networking, and more. AHF is also working to develop fun games, brain breaks, virtual scavenger hunts (including sponsor content), and more. Most of all, AHF will do what we do best – create unique networking moments to further bring together our community. We will weave additional interaction touchpoints throughout our virtual conference, including ways for sponsors to get in touch with operators.

Confirmed/Existing 2020 Sponsors: If you are a confirmed sponsor and wish to discuss your options and opportunities, please contact Leah Reily – lreily@healthcarefoodservice.org.

AHF Operators With Buying Power

Build Critical Relationships with AHF

This is your chance to support operators and help them innovate and improve efficiencies. In a recent survey, nearly 100% of operators noted that either staffing or revenue were of extreme concern in a post-covid world. Operators noted that they will be looking for new and unique ways to deliver patient and customer experiences with less – that’s where our innovative business partners come in.

Most of all, you will be able to reach Operators that do not normally attend our live annual conferences, further expanding your connections. In a recent member survey, AHF’s top 2 benefits of membership were networking and building relationships with AHF business partners. Let us help you build new relationships and strengthen existing ones. Then join us in Dallas in 2021 to continue your conversations.
