Mark Parkinson"This year marks an important and meaningful shift to a new name for the AHCA/NCAL Convention & Expo:  DELIVERING SOLUTIONS 23. But it is not just a name change, it’s our mission and promise to you," Mark Parkinson, President & CEO.

1. To learn from colleagues in both formal education sessions and informal discussions. ​

We’ve worked hard to create a program that addresses the needs of providers across the spectrum, resulting in a mix of intensive sessions and specialized education tracks along with ample opportunities for informal networking.

The conference faculty is made up of experts in long term, assisted living, and post-acute care who are passionate about sharing what they know. Many of the speakers are on the same path as attendees, making their presentations both relevant and actionable.

These four days of programming will provide you with inspiration and more than a few new ideas to share and implement. 

2. To explore cutting-edge advancements and collaborative solutions at the Expo Hall.

For both exhibitors and attendees, our Expo Hall provides an incredible opportunity to foster meaningful connections and advancements in long term, assisted living, and post-acute care.

For Attendees
Whether you seek top-notch products or specialized services, you will find a wide range of cost-saving solutions in the Expo Hall.

We encourage you to spend both days interacting with exhibitors. A complimentary lunch will be provided in the hall on both days, creating opportunities for seamless networking.

For Exhibitors
The Expo Hall, as a non-competing environment, is designed to ensure that vendors receive undivided attention, fostering an atmosphere of collaboration. Attendees are eager to engage with vendor partners as they seek solutions to their everyday challenges.

Exhibitors are welcome to partake in any non-ticketed offerings, including educational sessions, product demonstrations, access to our event app, and more.

3. To celebrate AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award recipients, winners of the AHCA and NCAL Awards, and all those dedicated to providing quality care at the Elevating Excellence Awards Ceremony.

Bring your energy, enthusiasm, and hearty cheers as your peers from across the nation are celebrated for their accomplishments and commitment to excellence at the Elevating Excellence Awards.

Keep the post-ceremony excitement alive at the Mile High Jamboree­—an inaugural event for all conference attendees, with food, drinks, fun activities, and a live band to dance the night away!

4. To connect with peers—new and old—who share the same passions, goals, and challenges.

There is nothing else like a convention experience. Take it all in. Introduce yourself to fellow attendees, exhibitors, and speakers, and discover all the areas you have in common.

Consider inviting staff members from various departments to foster a culture of collaboration and knowledge-sharing. This will empower them to bring back fresh ideas to share and implement.

Attend the PAC event and support the association’s advocacy efforts in Washington, DC, to advance critical issues impacting long term care.

5. To experience the city of Denver and Rocky Mountain views.

The Mile High City of Denver is located on rolling plains just east of the foothills within view of the Front Range, a series of formidable snowcapped peaks that rise to 14,000 feet above sea level.
In addition to this breathtaking backdrop, Denver has emerged as one of the top dining locations in the country with a thriving culinary scene.

See you in Denver this fall!
