What brands say about GBK

I have been participating in GBK’s lounges and special events for 9 years… I can’t believe the time has flown. I do about 8 events a year.  Gavin, the CEO and founder, is dedicated to bringing in the best talent and celebrity guests. I have, in fact, asked to invite a few celebrities that I know personally; and have had to send them through a rigorous vetting process. There lounges are legitimate and the quality is evident at every turn. From invited guests, to the decor and theming that takes place, there’s no mistaking that you are at a GBK event!

Not only does the company strive to bring the best products, from around the world, to participate in its lounges, they actually care about the PR outreach and social media interaction between those brands and the celebrities, as well as the public at large.  This gives you a magnificent bang for your buck. I stopped measuring my media reach, hits and impressions, a couple of years ago.  I simply didn’t need to.  My phone rings and the celebrities on the other end are all the quantifiers I need.

GBK has given me access to top-notch celebrities, amazing media outlets, priceless connections with other brands and numerous networking opportunities.  I count GBK as an integral part of my marketing plan and will continue to do so for years! –

It was AMAZING working with GBK productions and Gavin. We were able to have our products in the hands of many celebrities. This certainly elevated our business to a whole NEW level. Everyone on the GBK team is so professional and we are looking forward to our next event at the 2017 Emmys! Y under promise and Over Deliver. The A++ Superstars! –

As a new brand, we have tried many gifting suites to gain exposure. GBK is hands down the best.  Not only do they deliver A-listers, but they not only connect you with celebs during the event, but most importantly keep you in mind for additional opportunities after the event as well.  Because of the national TV opportunity on “The View” in November, 2018, that GBK made happen for PortoVino, we had a 10X day of sales. We also received coverage in a nationally distributed magazine in addition to all the other coverage that their gifting Suite event received.  Our investment was well worth it!  Gavin, Jaz and Luca are amazing to work with! –

The Artisan Group has been working with GBK for going on 8 years, participating in 3+ events with them per year. My Sr. Account Executive, is communicative, and super helpful, and *always* goes out of her way to ensure I have not only what I need, but she anticipates things I don’t even know I need yet. The event decor is stellar! It’s really quite amazing to see the raw space being transformed into such a wonderland. GBK’s streamlined event processes are on point, and purely professional. Even the interns are top-notch. Through our partnership with GBK, my small business, along with the hundreds of other artisan businesses TAG represents, has been taken to the next level. With access to nominees and other relevant celebrities, as well as VIPs, and press & media, we have received mentions in top publications such as E! Online and OK! Magazine, and professional product photographs with nominees/winners such as Viola Davis, Gina Rodriguez, Tony Hale, Melissa McCarthy, Angela Bassett, and countless other celebrities. Many doors have been opened as a result of our participation in GBK’s events. If you’re looking into celebrity gifting suites, and photos with celebrities, as a means to market your business, GBK really is the way to go. –
