The 10 sales representatives chosen each receive complimentary airfare, accommodations, and conference registration for themselves and a guest. During a special segment of the conference, each of the 10 winners has the opportunity to choose one of 10 briefcases. Nine of the briefcases will hold a $500 cash prize; one will contain a $5,000 grand prize.
