ANA convention pre-registration goes on-line; prizes offered

The American Numismatic Association (ANA) is introducing on-line convention preregistration with its World’s Fair of Money 2000 in Philadelphia, August 9-13.

“Internet use is growing, and we thought many of those planning to attend our convention this summer would like the opportunity to pre-register for the show via our web site ( and click on to ‘Current Events,’ ” says Convention Services Manager Brenda Bishop. “As an incentive, we will give away to one lucky person who pre-registers online before July 15 a choice of either a convention banquet ticket or the convention two medal set.”

Pre-registration saves members time and money. It assures that ANA member badges are prepared and ready for pickup at the show, and that official ribbons and other requested items are included in pre-registration packets. Those who register before July 15 receive discounts on convention badges, medals, tours and banquet tickets, and special rates at ANA hotels in Philadelphia.

“We have some wonderful tours planned for the show,” Bishop says, “including a historic tour of Philadelphia via trolley; a trip to the Independence Seaport Museum; special numismatic tours of the United States Mint, the Federal Reserve Bank and The Franklin Mint Museum. We also have reserved tickets for a Major League Baseball game between the Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres. Everyone who purchases one or more tours will be given a special commemorative tour pass.”

No purchase is necessary to enter the free drawing for the banquet ticket or medal set. All those who pre-register for the ANA World’s Fair of Money through the ANA’s web site will automatically be entered. The winner will be chosen at random after pre-registration ends on July 14, 2000. Members of the ANA Board of Governors, officers, staff and their immediate families are ineligible for the drawing.

The ANA has arranged for airfare discounts of 5 to 15 percent on United Airlines, the official airline for the World’s Fair of Money 2000. United is offering 5-percent off the lowest applicable fare, 10-percent off unrestricted coach fares and an additional 5 percent off if tickets are purchased 60 days prior to departure.
