Become A Sponsor

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.

Build Critical Relationships with AHF

This is your chance to support operators and help them innovate and improve efficiencies. In a recent survey, operators noted that they will be looking for new and unique ways to deliver patient and customer experiences with less. More than that AHF’s top two listed membership benefits were networking and building relationships with AHF business partners. Let us help you build new relationships and strengthen existing ones. 

By partnering with AHF, you’ll have access to mailing lists, online communities, advertising, exhibiting at our national conference, and more. Sponsors stand shoulder to shoulder with operators and are a critical piece of AHF’s ability to champion self-operated facilities. In short, AHF’s opportunities and ways to engage with this vital market are endless.
