#4 One East Kentucky

One East Kentucky has created a series of six 360-degree VR and 3D renderings that will market available land at industrial park sites and existing buildings that are for sale. The videos will allow the organization to take viewers on a tour of the region from anywhere in the world. Some of the most notable features in the videos include the 3D renderings that seem very real. One of the best economic development videos from 2022 was the virtual tour GSA created for One East Kentucky. This is the first time a business and site consultant can walk through a building that is over 50,000 square feet and take measurements as they go. It’s incredible technology at work in our virtual world.
