2022 marks the return to live award shows and events, which means the return of the celebrity gifting suites prior to each show.  The biggest award show naturally had the best luxury lounge. eBay & GBK Brand Bar proved we are back on track and haven’t missed a beat. Luxury lounge, located at the prestigious Beverly Wilshire hotel in Beverly Hills invited not just Oscar but also SAG, Golden Globe and GRAMMY nominees. Ariana DeBose, Viola Davis, Angela Bassett  are just a few of many celebrities who visited to check out participating brands. The event highlighted Save the Children and their current work in the Ukraine, so there was a definite and needed social good aspect to the festivities.

Oscar nominees and celebrity attendees were gifted items ranging from luxury handbags and watches to healthy protein bars while enjoying both the gorgeous Los Angeles weather as well as treats and beverages.

eBay & GBK Brand Bar Pre-Oscar In the process, GBK has donated or raised over 10 million dollars in products and services since 2002. This year was no different, guests were invited to participate in a private retail activation and personalized closet clean out program to support the American Red Cross, benefiting the Ukraine.

GBK Brand Bar CEO Gavin Keilly was on-hand to greet celebrities, give them a tour, and take time to speak with attendees. He told us that they were thrilled to be back in-person to honor the amazing work of the Academy Award Nominees while hosting some awesome brands and services.

The current trends of health and wellness were definitely represented here from CBD to Vegan options. Even the coffee was smooth and low acid, which was refreshing and delicious. eBay was on hand with a watch cam (think a red carpet for your wrist to show off your watches and jewelry), as well as answer questions about the closet clean out to help benefit the Ukraine.

The mood at eBay & GBK Brand Bar was high energy and multiplied by each attendee. Everyone was most certainly enjoying various treats provided by the vendors, and Mother Nature, who provided the perfect temperatures and weather.
