A Beacon is a deliberately prominent apparatus designed to focus attention on a specific location or collection of facts. Visualize the image that the word beacon conjures in your mind: maybe a lighthouse casting light onto an otherwise dark sea, or a bonfire on a hilltop sending a message to distant viewers such as during our Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in June this year. A Beacon is used to draw attention, act as a guide or call to action. They have long been used to rally citizens together and act as signal points.
So, in a nutshell, the Stafford Beacon Conference Centre is the Conferencing Facility of the Beacon International Centre and is Located in a prominent location looking out over the Staffordshire Technology Park and the distant countryside.
