Changes to AHA Events Schedule and New Sponsorship Opportunities

New ways to engage with AHA members


Recognizing the ongoing efforts of hospitals and health systems fighting COVID-19 in their communities while also providing care for other patient needs, the American Hospital Association (AHA) has canceled our live events and all affiliated events scheduled between April and the end of July 2020. We value our relationship with our sponsors and regret any inconvenience this presents.

Important event sponsorship opportunities still exist, however, as we roll out a series of programs to engage the field through the remainder of 2020 and into early 2021. And don’t forget, we continue to offer opportunities for webinar sponsorships, lead generation and more.


Upcoming National and Regional Live and Virtual Event Sponsorship Opportunities


While the AHA Leadership Summit scheduled for July 19-21 in San Diego has been canceled, we are eager to involve your organization when the AHA hosts a national virtual conference to examine the heroic efforts of hospitals, health systems and the broader field as the work to respond and rebuild in the face of COVID-19 continues. This event will take place Sept. 14-16. Sessions will address:

  • Workforce considerations (e.g., burnout, resiliency).
  • Consumer perceptions and communications strategies.
  • Implications for strategic planning and business strategy (e.g., new business models, facility planning).
  • The new patient experience (e.g., digital engagement, virtual care); financial implications and recovery.
  • Innovations and new care models (e.g., home-centered models, social determinants of health, equity).

Attendees will include hospital and health systems leaders across a range of disciplines looking to share, learn, innovate and strategize for the new era of care delivery post-COVID-19;

  • Executive leadership.
  • Trustees.
  • Strategic planning and business development.
  • Clinical and operational executives.
  • Marketing and digital engagement.
  • Communications and public relations.

More intimate, executive-level in-person convenings are being planned that will focus on how we collaborate and innovate to build the health care system of the future, informed by the lessons of the pandemic. As a sponsor, you'll have an exclusive opportunity to interact with AHA-member hospital and health system thought leaders and AHA leadership.
