Expense Report
"Travel is never a matter of money but of courage," said novelist Paulo Coelho. But it can take plenty of guts to pony up the per diems you and your company face attending exhibitions and events in some of the country's top trade show cities. See if you can guess the city based on the locale's description and average per diem cost (including food and lodging, based on the latest Corporate Travel Index from Business Travel News) in this month's quiz. Don't worry if you don't get them all right – because it won't cost you a penny. By Charles Pappas
