NYNEX Sponsoring New York Hispanic Business Conference -- Networking Solutions Offered
NEW YORK CITY -- For the fourth year in a row, NYNEX will be the major
sponsor of the New York State Federation of Hispanic Chambers of Commerce
Held today and tomorrow (6/21-22) at the New York Hilton, the
convention brings together 30 of the most influential Hispanic business
organizations in New York, representing some 10,000 members at large.
In conference speeches and seminars and at a booth in the exhibit
area, NYNEX representatives will stress with business leaders and owners
the ever-growing importance of advanced telecommunications products and
services. With expanded network capabilities made possible by NYNEX,
electronic funds transfers, new data and video technologies and local
advanced call management, businesses can easily manage operations
internationally and locally.
"To be successful in international markets, small- and
medium-sized companies should have the capabilities of their larger
counterparts," said Ward MacKenzie, NYNEX vice president for Business
Network Solutions. "Telecommunications is being used the world over to
overcome old business barriers. NYNEX plays a large role in counseling
these smaller companies about communications technologies and network
solutions. This allows companies to concentrate on making their own
business more efficient and profitable."
With more than 50,000 Hispanic businesses in New York City alone,
NYNEX last year established La Conexin de NYNEX, a business center
designed with the Spanish-speaking business owner in mind.
Recently expanded, La Conexion de NYNEX (1-800-347-8424) is
staffed by a team of bilingual representatives who can recommend and
describe the advantages of a NYNEX communications solution, answer
questions about existing telecommunications services, and discuss how
special opportunities can help businesses operate more efficiently.
"Telecommunications technology has become a key competitive
element for small- and medium-sized businesses. The La Conexion de NYNEX
team is dedicated to simplifying for Hispanic business owners the benefits
our products and services can have on their operations," said MacKenzie.

a full range of services in the northeastern United States and
high-growth markets around the world, including the United Kingdom,
Thailand, Gibraltar, Greece, Indonesia, the Philippines, Poland,
