    My employer hosts a conference every year.
    Each year we give away a prize. It's usually an iPod or a GPS. This year it will be a 16GB Playbook.
    I am curious to see how many people actually know what it is.

    It's just a prize to encourage the participants to visit each suppliers booth. It's always a $250 prize. So this year it's the 16GB Playbook with a RIM convertible case.

    I tried to talk them into buying me a 64GB and giving away my 16GB but they wouldn't go for it.

    Rail Safety.
    It started as a conference for local short line Railways in Atlantic Canada. Now we get participants from all over North America.
    The booths are Railway equipment suppliers and organizations like Operation Lifesaver.

    How about giving away a Playbook to a member of this forum? I know my wife would simply go crazy if she could have one too. I volunteer to receive one and let everyone know how she likes it.

    Actually fairly common at conferences, you get a booklet or card when you register and if you get it stamped at most/all of the booths (which usually requires agreeing to be spammed by the booth operators) then you can enter into a draw to win the 1 prize. It's not like you can visit a bunch of booths and poof, you get a free Playbook.
