PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - May 15, 2008) - Gigya, the largest widget distribution network and provider of tools and technologies for distributing, tracking and analyzing widgets, today announced that Rooly Eliezerov, Co-founder and President of Gigya, will speak at the 2008 iCitizen Symposium: The OPEN Imperative. He will speak on the panel called "A Universal Open," which is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, May 21, 9:15 to 10:00 a.m. ET at The Blackwell Auditorium on the campus of Ohio State University.

This panel will discuss the proliferation of personalized and user-generated content delivered when and where consumers want it. The iCitizen Symposium is an invitation-only event for an intimate group of Resource Interactive clients and partners gathered together for networking, beta 'first looks' and super-charged dialogue. Kicked off in 2006, the symposium serves as a platform to gather and take a deep dive into the opportunities and challenges offered by that new breed of consumer, what they refer to as the "icitizen."

The social web gives a voice to those passionate consumers and offers effective tools for them to create, share and influence each other and the brands they incorporate into their lives. As the rules of engagement continue to change, iCitizen: The OPEN Imperative provides the opportunity for industry influencers to gather and discuss some of today's most compelling topics such as:

--  Joining, participating, and influencing the online conversation
--  Understanding the future of social media and advertising
--  What are the psychographic characteristics of the Digital Millennials

As President and Co-founder of Gigya, Rooly Eliezerov helps lead business strategy and manages the Palo Alto office. With more than 10 years of marketing and product development experience, Eliezerov is a recognized pioneer in the development of Internet marketing and advertising products.
