NYNEX CONTACT: Media Relations,
NYNEX to Co-Sponsor Largest Expo In Country for Telephone
NEW YORK, NY -- NYNEX and
the Radio City Rockettes will give a kick to TeleCard World '95,
the country's largest telephone calling card expo, expected to
attract up to 100,000 collectors, enthusiasts and potential card
issuers to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City,
Sept. 28-30. NYNEX (Booth No. 400) is one of the main sponsors
of the event, and the Rockettes will be on hand to help the company
promote its new set of NYNEX Change Cards(r), which feature
the Radio City Music Hall marquee.
Media opportunities include:
o Custom-made phone cards. Attendees can be photographed with
a Rockette, and NYNEX will create on the spot a customized,
autographed NYNEX Change Card from the photo.
o The introduction of new NYNEX Prepaid Calling Service
cards. Unlike NYNEX Change Cards, which are designed to
be used at 500 special yellow pay phones in New York City, NYNEX
Prepaid Calling Service cards can be used from any phone in New
York City, Long Island, and Westchester, Putnam and Rockland counties.
o A student art contest. Students from top New York City art
schools have been working since the summer to vie for a $5,000
first prize to design a NYNEX Change Card based on the
theme "World Peace '96." Conference participants will
vote on the winner from among more than 100 entries. NYNEX
will issue a change card based on the winning design in December.
