21st Century Cast Welcomes Virtual Tour 2021
The return to industry-wide live events has been exhilarating, but there is still great value in using the online format. Last month, 21st Century Distributing, a member of the PowerHouse Alliance, hosted its annual Virtual Roadshow 2021 event. The second virtual iteration of the three-day event included product demonstrations, live training sessions, seminars on the growth of businesses and arcade games.
