​Hello Partners!

 
You told us what you want, and we listened: for this week only, May 19 – May 23, we are bringing back the Refer a Colleague Promotion for WPC 2014! Everyone has been doing such a great job spreading the word; we wanted to reward you for all your hard work. This week only, when you refer another partner to WPC, you can earn a US$100 refund. Each unique person you refer will result in a US$100 refund for you, with a maximum limit of ten referrals. With this promotion, you have the opportunity to earn up to a US$1,000 refund just by referring your friends and colleagues to register for WPC 2014.
 
This promotion is for one week only—starting 12:01 am PT May 19 through 11:59 pm PT May 23. Refer a partner during this week, and you will receive a US$100 refund. Refer ten unique individuals, and you will receive a refund for the maximum amount, US$1,000.
 
Not only are you going to receive a refund for referring someone to WPC 2014, but the person you referred will get a US$100 discount. All they have to do is enter your name as the “referrer” during registration. With US$100 off, that means they will only have to pay US$2,095 for their all-access pass!
 
As a reminder for this promotion, keep in mind that the refunds are distributed after the event. You won’t see your refund immediately after you refer a partner, but don’t worry—it’s on the way. After WPC, you will receive your reimbursement through the same method of payment you used to register.
 
Here are a few more details to be aware of when you participate in this promotion:
  • The WPC registration team will process refunds based on the first name, last name, and email address provided and will match this to the registered attendee list. These inputs must be identical to that associated with your registration.
  • Referrer names must be provided during the registration process, prior to completion. This information cannot be added after the attendee has completed the registration process.
  • Validation of an individual having been referred and confirmation of refunds cannot be provided due to Microsoft privacy rules.
  • Individuals who received a complimentary partner all-access pass are not eligible to participate or receive a refund for referring registrants. (Since no payment was received, a refund cannot be provided.)
  • Refunds are provided post-event via the same method of payment used. No refunds for any reason will be issued after September 14, 2014.
  • Due to Microsoft privacy rules, you will not receive the names of the individuals you referred or validation or confirmation that an individual registered. The full, detailed terms and conditions can be found below.
 
The refer-a-colleague promotion is a great chance to get rewarded for telling people about WPC. Tell your friends, coworkers, and colleagues how you can save them US$100 during this week only, and drive them to register today!
 
I look forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C.!
 
Best,

Kati
