My company is a Watermark sponsor. Am I considered a Watermark member?
Some sponsor contracts include memberships for employees; others do not. If your contract does not include memberships, we can provide you and your employees a 10% discount off of our membership fees. Please contact the membership team for your discount code.

 

How do I register for an event?
Go to the Watermark event calendar, click the event you're interested in and click Register. If you're a Watermark member, be sure you're logged in to receive your member discount. Having trouble logging in? Please contact Asa for help.

 
How many free event tickets do we receive as a sponsor?
The number of free event tickets is included in our partnership agreement, which you'll find on your Group page. This page is available to sponsor contacts only.
 
How do we decide who gets the free tickets?
It's up to you and your Leadership & Development team. It's always best to be clear on the parameters and the decision-making process before assigning free tickets.
 
What if we want additional tickets?
Unless an event is already sold out, you can purchase additional tickets at 10% off. Just use the special code SponComp when registering – it's yet another benefit of being a Watermark sponsor.
 
How many employees can I share the webinar links and passwords with?
As many as you’d like. All of your employees are welcome to view our webinars – including men! 
 
Do we get tickets to the Watermark Conference for Women?
We are unable to offer free Watermark Conference for Women tickets, but if you are a Watermark member and register early, there is a discount.
