When’s the last time you were in a new manufacturing or industry facility? Maybe you toured a colleague's shop during a trade show a few years ago or had to do an audit for a new supplier.
But with in-person events at a halt this year, many industrial companies are using videos to tour their shop floors and engage better with buyers.
