Delegate North America attended the AHF Conference

AHF – Annual Association for Healthcare Foodservice

Delegate North America were excited and proud to attend and support the Association for Healthcare Foodservice (AHF) Annual Conference, this year held at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa, 6902 E Greenway Pkwy, Scottsdale, AZ 85254


To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the AHF National Conference, this year’s AHF Conference focused on how now more than ever Self-Op operations need to be bold.

How do organizations combine leaps in technology, rising patient expectations and anticipation of healthier food options into innovative and inspiring initiatives?

AHF 2019 by the numbers:

  • 101 exhibiting companies represented, 23 brand new exhibitors
  • 25,000 sq. ft. of exhibitor space
  • 547 attendees, 230 operators, 93 first time operators

Feedback from attendees is that this year’s AHF Conference was one of the best in the 10 years of the AHF. 

This year, not only were Delegate proud to be a Bronze Sponsor. But our very own Adam Johnson, Director of Business Development, was a member of the Awards Committee, whose mission it is to develop, maintain and administer the AHF Awards Program as well present the finalists with their awards.

Adam was thrilled to be selected to be on the panel for the Technology Innovations Education Session.

Where he was able to present the cost and time savings, paired with improved Patient Satisfaction Scores can be seen by implementing BYOD (Bring You Own Device) into the organization. BYOD technology has been around for over 10 years and only now are Healthcare coming to the party.

The new BYOD module from Delegate will allow your patients to place their own meal orders, which are personalized and appropriate for their Diet and Allergy, using their own device. Organizations that have used this module have seen improved Patient Satisfaction scores and FTE Savings.

After a long first day, all attendees put on white and headed to the patio for Food, a well-earned Drink (or two!) and networking!

As a Bronze Exhibitor, Delegate North America were excited to show the attendees our world class Software. Introducing them to Cloud Hosting and BYOD. Along with some Swiss and America Chocolates.

There was plenty of Opportunities to network at the numerous coffee breaks and after a great 3 days, it was time to Celebrate 10 years of AHF. All attendees gathered in the Trailblazers ballroom for an evening of fine food, champagne and dancing.

Patient’s & Resident’s experience better! For those who we did not get to meet this year we look forward to seeing you next year.

For those who were unable to attend this year we would recommend you look at the AHF website and we look forward to seeing you next year.

Save the Date – the 2020 AHF Conference will be August 4-7, at Omni ChampionsGate in Orlando, Florida. See you there!
