A member of AHF leadership or staff would be happy to provide you with a guided tour of the tradeshow upon request. 

Build Critical Relationships with AHF

This is your chance to support operators’ efforts to innovate, automate, and increase efficiency. In a recent member survey AHF operators noted that automation was a key factor in their purchasing decision. Their top three challenges include labor, supply chain issues, and inflation. They are exploring mobile ordering, robotics, meal delivery, grab-and-go, new software, and so much more. In the coming 3 years:

  • 83% of operators will purchase new equipment
  • 75% of operators will invest in new technology and software
  • 64% of operators will overhaul their menu to incorporate plant-forward items, sustainability or newer products such as lab meat
  • 43% of operators will upgrade their café or restaurant spaces
"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!"
