DPA will produce the first ever virtual gift suite in Hollywood

DPA is launching “the DPA pre-awards virtual gift suite” in September 2020

A veteran in the production of star-studded events, Nathalie Dubois, President and CEO of DPA (Dubois, Pelin and Associates), has proven herself to be exceptionally innovative and successful in the realm of celebrity gift suites. Originally from France, Nathalie Dubois attributes her success in part to her world travels and the exotic cultural influences of the products she picks for her unique gift suites. DPA also opened its first Asian office in Tokyo, Japan in 2017, facilitating her work with the Asian market.

Recently due to the Covid-19 worldwide crisis, DPA paused its gift suites operations, cancelling among others its Cannes gift suite in May during the Cannes film festival in France.

The firm (owner of "giftingsuite.com") used that lockdown time, to revamp its concept and created few new departments:

  • September 17 and 18, 2020, for the beginning of the Awards Season, “The DPA pre awards virtual gift suite” will receive on its platform stars from the biggest TV shows. The Online gift suite will be opened from 10am to 6pm, for two days, and will feature around 20 brands.

Each star will “plug in “to the virtual gift suite and will discover each brand accompanied by a first responder. DPA wanted to celebrate of course stars, but also recognize the amazing and dangerous work that some of these first responders have been doing the past few months. She thought they deserve as much the gifts for their work than the stars.

  • October 2020, DPA will open a star endorsement department in Paris, looking into collaboration with top French advertising agencies, luxury fortune 500 companies, and event production companies in the French capital. “This is the logical step for me, using 33 years’ experience with stars and an amazing address book in Hollywood,” said Nathalie Dubois, the CEO of DPA.

A third new department is in the works right now and will be announced later on this winter.
“Physical in-person” gift suites will resume, the week of the Césars in Paris, and the week of the Golden Globes, in Los Angeles, both in February 2021.
