About AHF Annual Conferences

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 in acute care and senior dining. 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, leadership, retail management, culinary inspiration, and so much more. Not only that but our events are a place to make life long friends. AHF is an open, welcoming, community, and one packed full of individuals capable of lending support and advice. You don’t want to miss being a part of our annual conference. 

What’s included? Nearly everything. Unlike other events where you may have to budget in added food and event costs, your registration fee covers all your meals, all AHF events and activities, all sessions, and anything else that we plan to help members. The only thing not included is area activities (field trips).
