NYNEX to Co-Sponsor Largest Expo In Country for Telephone

Calling Cards


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.
