AHF works to build critical access points to the self-operated healthcare/LTC communities at every level and stage of your sponsorship. Our annual packages include both year-round and conference-specific benefits for in-person touchpoints. AHF estimates that the self-operated facilities account for more than $8 billion in annual food purchases of the total $12 billion US market. When you add equipment, technology,  and service spends into the mix the number grows exponentially.

Our sponsors agree that our members are highly engaged, come ready to find trusted vendors, and have purchasing power. Not only is the healthcare foodservice market growing, but the portion of that market belonging to self-operated facilities is also growing. It is estimated that approximately 60-70% of the healthcare and LTC foodservice industry are self-operated.

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

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.

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 Scottsdale in 2022 to continue your conversations.

"AHF is filled with networking opportunities, learning sessions and fun events! As a business partner, we are welcomed and encouraged to interact with operators. We are proud to support AHF and attend the conference each year!"
