Winning advisors dig for gold on the Gold Coast in Room-Res.com incentive


The bed bank's recent trade incentive gave advisors a chance to win a $1,000 bar of real gold.

The nine winning agents converged on the Gold Coast to dig for a gold bar.

One lucky agent showed he has the Midas touch, winning a gold bar worth more than $1,000 in a recent promotion from Room-Res.com.

Nine agents made it through to the grand final of ‘The Gold and the Beautiful’ competition, which took place on the Gold Coast.

Each finalist enjoyed five-star luxury accommodation at The Dorsett, whale watching, theme parks and jet skiing before proceedings culminated in the ‘Gold Bar Beach Competition’.

Contestants faced a mix of travel trivia and beach sports before selecting one of nine impressive sand-sculpted castles. Each agent then knocked down their castle to see whose contained the gold bar.
