Hello partners,
It’s true—from January 12-16, we’re offering partners the chance to earn US$100 for each person they refer to register for WPC, for up to ten referrals. That’s up to US$1,000 in potential savings!*
Get rewarded for being an influencer in your community by taking advantage of these savings. If you have a colleague who is interested in attending WPC, and you want to earn a refund on a portion of your all-access pass, you can both benefit. Our Refer a Colleague discount is designed to reward you for starting your networking early.
For this week only, 12:01am PT January 12 through 11:59pm PT January 16, partners will receive $100 off their all-access pass when they enter the name of a referrer (this could be you!) during registration for WPC 2015. Refunds will be provided for up to ten (10) unique, individual referrals, up to a maximum of US$1,000. But that’s not all—your referred colleagues will also receive US$100 off of the full registration price for a 2015 WPC all-access pass, which means they will only have to pay US$1,695.
Here’s a little more about how it works:
  • Tell your friends and colleagues to register for WPC 2015: tweet about it, share on LinkedIn, and email your network.
  • Instruct them to register during the weeklong referral period, and ask them to input your first and last name and email address (that you used to register) when they’re asked during the registration process if they were referred.
  • In order to be eligible for a refund, you must have already previously registered for WPC and the first name, last name, and email address that your referral enters must match your registration.
This is a terrific opportunity to get rewarded by strengthening your network. Reach out to those partners you’re looking forward to seeing at WPC.
Have questions? These tips might help:
  • 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 cannot be added after the attendee has completed the registration process. It must be provided during the registration process, prior to completion.
  • Validation of an individual having been referred and confirmation of refunds cannot be provided due to Microsoft privacy rules.
  • Individuals who receive 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 30, 2015.
  • 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.
Ready to save on WPC registration? Get out there and tell your colleagues about this great opportunity. We can’t wait to see you at WPC 2015 in Orlando.
Best,
