How would you like to go to a red carpet event with all of your favorite television stars, mix and mingle, and get the royal treatment? Can you imagine walking into a hotel suite which has all kinds of luxuries, sweet indulgences, and frivolous gifts that you can choose, which fill up a large duffel bag and they're all for FREE? You are literally like a kid in a candy store.....and everyone wants to give you something special.
While this may sound unreal, when you are an Emmy nominee, you and your fellow TV stars are being showered with attention, gifts and even precious gems, and each company wants to have a photo of you endorsing their brand. This is also a way of free advertising for the sumptuous gourmet treats, the exotic resort travel, the trinkets and trendy gifts that you may never get for yourself or your BFFs.
GBK is the IT lounge for the IN crowd. They hold the largest gifting suites for all of the Hollywood glam events. This year it was at the L’Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. The hotel was teeming with the hottest stars.
Picture this: Your agent sends you an exclusive invitation to attend the GBK Lounge and PILOT PEN kick off event for Globes weekend where you will experience the ultimate gift lounge in honor of the 2014 GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS. Imagine your self dressed beyond words and walking into a private VIP event around the rooftop pool and lounge overlooking Beverly Hills and Hollywood. As you enter the event, you are greeted by your own personal escort who carries an empty duffel bag which is to be filled with amazing gifts for you, your family, and friends. The first stop is something to eat, and sponsored drinks, such as exclusive vineyard wines, gourmet cookies and pastries as well as a spread of nourishing snacks.
You then entered the secret space filled with a "Wide Range of Luxury Products and Welcomed Guests on Nominated Shows/ Movies Such as: Sally Hawkins (Nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture), Helene Yorke (Masters of Sex), Jim O’Heir (Parks and Recreation), Lesley Nicol (Downton Abbey), Martha Plimpton (The Good Wife), RJ Mitte (Breaking Bad), Shea Wigham (Wolf of Wall Street, American Hustle), Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Kelsey Scott (12 Years a Slave), Elsie Fisher (Despicable Me 2) and Many More.”
