PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - March 14, 2008) - Gigya, the largest performance-based widget distribution network and provider of tools and technologies for distributing, tracking and analyzing widgets, announced today that Ben Pashman, Vice President, Business Development, will speak at the 2008 iMedia Breakthrough Summit March 16 - March 19, 2008 in Rancho Mirage, CA. Ben will join David Berkowitz, Director of Emerging Media & Client Strategy, 360i, and Adam Broitman, Director of Emerging and Creative Strategy, Morpheus Media, on a panel called "Data Portability and the Social Graph." Peter Shankman, CEO of The Geek Factory, Inc. will moderate the session.

iMedia created the Breakthrough Summit in 2006 to tackle the full range of issues and opportunities marketers and their agencies are dealing with as they seek to employ "breakthrough" emerging media such as broadband video, mobile marketing, social networks, virtual communities and in-game advertising. It has become an exciting and unique iMedia event where both marketers and their agencies come together to collectively work on these opportunities.

This year's Breakthrough Summit will again, bring together the best and most active online marketers -- both brands and their agencies -- with online media sellers and technology service providers. The goal is to foster growth of effective campaigns integrating emerging media applications.
