PHILADELPHIA – NAPCO Media bought out its partner in a pair of hosted-buyer events for the printing industry.

NAPCO acquired full ownership of Inkjet Summit and Digital Packaging Summit from nGage Events and also picked up the nGage executive who had been handling operations and marketing for the conferences as part of the deal. Dave Pesko joined NAPCO as Executive Vice President of Business Development.

“It has been a pleasure to work with the NAPCO media team to launch and grow these events during the past five years,” said Phil McKay, nGage’s CEO. “We are proud that the Inkjet Summit and Digital Packaging Summit have grown into tight-knit communities. We are also thrilled that Dave Pesko will continue to lead and develop the summits as part of the NAPCO team.”

Inkjet Summit launched five years ago with NAPCO and nGage as equal partners, and Digital Packaging Summit debuted in 2015. Both take place at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Florida. NAPCO is a B2B media company that owns four publications and websites in the printing and packaging sector. McKay and nGage specialize in organizing hosted-buyer events in a variety of industries.

“These events have delivered impressive organic growth in recent years, driven by the market demand for digital printing,” said NAPCO President Dave Leskusky. “nGage has been a phenomenal partner and has played a vital role in the success of these events. We’re excited to fully integrate these brands into NAPCO Media and expand them further in the future.”
