Flexibility has been an integral part of life this year, and a special group of publications that are offering flexibility to their readers in how they experience their media brand is The Beacon Newspapers.

The Beacon Newspapers are a group of publications that have been offering readers in the 50+ age range in the Washington D.C., Greater Baltimore Howard County, MD & Richmond Virginia areas thoughtful articles, living tips and helpful resources since 1989. Reaching 400,000+ readers, The Beacon has been an invaluable publication for individuals in their target age group. The group publishes four geo-targeted editions, an annual print Resource Guide, and the Silver Pages online product and service directory.

From an experiential standpoint, The Beacon Newspapers are making an innovative pivot from in-person events to virtual events in an exciting way. In the past, a mainstay event The Beacon spearheaded was the 50+ Expo, a local event that showcased exciting speakers, entertainers and informational exhibits that provided a great way for citizens to learn about local resources in their area, and local businesses to present their offerings in a meaningful way.

This year, in light of Covid-19, rather than cancelling the event, they partnered with other local organizations to bring the 50+ Expo online in a fun and interactive way for folks who’d still like to attend. This year, people interested in attending can visit this link https://beacon50expo.com to view classes, hear speakers, visit exhibitors and enjoy the available entertainment. The 50+ Expo will be available online from November 1, 2020 – January 31, 2021.
