Fostering the Future of Hospitality

Watermark Beach Resort is proud to support this great cause!


The Partners in Tourism – TIP Society is a charitable organization that provides scholarships and bursaries to students and new graduates of Hospitality and Tourism programs.

We want to thank them for all that they do.


We know how important it is to foster passion and professionalism in the hospitality industry, and we were glad to have the opportunity to contribute to this fundraiser.


The Tourism Industry Partners Invitational Golf Tournament raises more than $60,000 annually for its awards program! This money goes directly to the recipients, who are chosen from across the province. Watermark is looking forward to watching the success of these rising stars in the tourism, hospitality, adventure and culinary fields.


We believe in encouraging, supporting, and training the hospitality leaders of tomorrow.

Join us in congratulating all of the 2017 awards recipients!
