Impart Media Group Appoints Former Wal-Mart Exec to New Advisory Board

Announcement Coincides With Impart's New Domestic Market Retailing Strategies and International Expansion Into China

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2007 -- Impart™ Media Group, Inc. (OTCBB: IMMG), a provider of end-to-end networked digital signage solutions for the enhanced delivery of information, brand marketing, merchandising, and advertising, announced today the formal appointment of former Wal-Mart EVP/COO, Jim Haworth to its new Strategic Advisory Board.

Since September 2006, Mr. Jim Haworth, age 45, has served as an Executive Director, Chief Executive Officer & President of Shanghai Lotus Supermarket China Store Co., Ltd. Mr. Haworth obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Central Missouri State University, U.S.A. He was presented the 2001 World Class Leadership Award and also selected by Northwest Arkansas Business Journal as one of the top leaders, in the "40 Under 40" in 2000. He is a director of Sweet Success Enterprises, Inc., a company listed on the Over-the-Counter market in the U.S. From 2001 to 2004, Mr. Haworth was the Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., a company listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

According to Joe F. Martinez, Impart's Chairman & CEO, "Jim brings a wealth of major retailing management experience and industry success that is already contributing to new product concepts and client projects for Impart. The retailing space is evolving rapidly -- as the next wave of interactive, in-store digital signage will complement the shifts in consumer habits -- requiring the convenience and intimacy of search for product information and the means to complete the transaction without the pressure (and expense) of in-store sale personnel.

Mr. Martinez continued, "The convergence of technology, media, and packaging requires levels of expertise from within these interdependent disciplines. Additionally, the expanding global market requires experienced executives that respect the varying cultures and possess the management skill sets in successfully conducting business around the world. Mr. Haworth represents the first of other high profile executives that will be joining our new Strategic Advisory Board, as we accelerate our domestic market successes in North America and continue our aggressive expansion into international markets, such as China, United Kingdom, and Mexico. We are privileged to have Jim advising and impacting our business development strategies, with his strong retailing and insider perspective. When you want the best, you go out and find the best... which is exactly what we did."

Impart's Strategic Advisory Board (SAB) was formed to bring top level executives and academics from the public and private sector together to provide critical and supportive policy advice and guidance to the Chairman/CEO and Corporate Officers of Impart Media Group, Inc. by enhancing the company's leadership reach and role in the global, fast-evolving, out-of-home (OOH) digital signage business sector. The SAB will also help foster a sense of community among the company employees, supply chain vendors, service providers, and end-clients.
