We always try to get latest new, cool, products, and try to stay away from the trinkets.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) February 5, 2009
After great success during the Emmy's, GBK (http://www.gbkproductions.com) decided to partner up again with Dakota Mountain Lodge, a Waldorf Astoria Property at the Sundance Film Festival.
GBK Productions Gift Lounge in Sundance was not your typical gifting Suite. Unlike most of the gifting suites, GBK decided to make it a little more exclusive and not to let everyone and their mother into their lounge. In order to get access, one had to walk through Dakota Mountain Lodge's beautiful mock condo and go downstairs. Their suite could not be seen from the street like most others. They know why the vendors participate in gifting suites. It is for the press and the exposure to high level celebrities. For this reason, GBK decided to partner up with E! and was in the headquarters of Hollywood Reporter.
Even though this year many of the bigger celebrities did not attend Sundance, due to the Inauguration, GBK was able to get those that did into their suite. Some of the celebrities that stopped by included the cast from some of the top movies "Push" and "Mystery Men". Others included, Billy Bob Thorton, Christina Milian, Jamie Kennedy, Brittany Snow, Gael Garcia, Michael Cera, the lead singer from Korn, and many others.
The gifts the celebrities received were also all valued at between $100-$3,000. Gavin Keilly, CEO of GBK said, "We always try to get latest new, cool, products, and try to stay away from the trinkets." Celebrities don't like holding up a bottle of deodorant for a photo. They frankly only don't mind taking photos with the products that they are actually going to use.
Some of the items that were in GBK's Gifting Lounge, included but were not limited to Keurig Coffee makers, a Year worth of Nordic Natural Vitamins, $500 Skin Cream that vanishes wrinkles from Life Cell Skin, Custom Molded Ski Boots from Sure Foot, Revitalash's hit eyelash conditioner that continues to help these celebrities eyelashes grow, and one of the biggest highlights were the Tri-Specs. These Tri Specs were first to be seen at GBK's lounge. They are brand new to the market and give the individual the ability to put on a pair of sunglasses and literally either listen to ones MP3 player or talk on the phone through the blue tooth component. Every Celebrity went crazy for these. Celebrities also had the ability to try out the new Mistura Beauty make-up, brand new to the United States, but certainly a well know entity in Canada. Everyone loved this mineral make-up, especially in the cold weather… Hollywood skin factory was on hand cutting up the most amazing soap, and passing out their phenomenal body butter. The women and men alike were excited about the gift from Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Inc, and Dr Chiu. They gave out a certificate for an entire year of free facials, botox and restylane at their facility in LA. There were jeans, scarves and dresses from Nappi Clothing, and many other things. All and all the celebrities enjoyed themselves and the vendors certainly got a great return on their investment…
