What's Up with the Bees?

Actually, it’s one bee—our mascot, Federico! You’ve likely seen him buzzing around our website and at conferences, and it’s about time we gave him a formal introduction.

So, why did we choose a bee? Because we pollin8™ reviews across the top healthcare review sites, of course!

Have you picked up a squishy Federico figurine from one of our conference booths? Post a photo of him, tag us on social media, and use #whereisfederico! Bonus points if you share your favorite pun about the world’s most efficient pollin8or—and we aren’t just talking about the bees.

Upcoming Panel Webinar
