LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pilot Corporation of America (Pilot Pen) is celebrating the "modern classic" art of television, and the powerful role the pen can play in the creative process, as the title sponsor of the 2017 GBK Pre-Emmy Awards Lounge, taking place September 15 and 16 at the Viceroy L'Ermitage in Beverly Hills, California. At the lounge, Pilot will invite celebrity guests to handwrite and share their inspirational mottos after selecting their perfect pen.

- The G2 – the most highly sought-after classic gel ink pen, with a reputation for reliability. As America's No. 1 selling and longest writing gel ink pen, G2 is the ultimate pen for the overachievers.

GBK attendees will also have the opportunity to support their charity of choice by participating in Pilot's philanthropic social media campaign, 'Pilot Purpose.' Guests will be invited to share the motto that inspires them every day, along with the name of their charity, and post it on their personal social media pages using #PilotPurpose.
