December 2 was our last Free Demo Day of the decade, and #TeamKupa gathered to celebrate the nail industry with education, networking, free gift bags, and raffles.
Throughout the past ten years, Kupa Inc. has evolved with the ever-expanding technological landscape. We strive to support nail techs throughout their careers with the industry's most dependable machines, and have won the Readers Choice Awards from publications like NAILS Magazine and Nail Pro for many consecutive years.
The MANIPro Passport has lasted many nail techs more than a decade! Watch UK Kupa Educator Kym Moody humblebrag at Nailympia London 2019 about how her MANIPro has last her 16 years! It's clear that MANIPro Passports are built to last.
Kupa Inc. has also been at the forefront of content creation, allowing tech to receive easy-to-understand, free education from the comfort of their own home. We broadcast weekly Facebook Live Demos, and film recap shows for NAILS' Next Top Nail Artist. We even broadcast our in-person Kupa University E-file Course for free to anyone who wants to tune in. Educating nail techs is our priority, and Kupa's involvement in the industry is unparalleled!
Over the past ten years, Kupa President Richard Hurter and the rest of Team Kupa have attended dozens of trade shows, traveling nationally and internationally all in the name of nails.

As we welcome the new decade, Kupa Inc. welcomes the digital age with the introduction of the Kupa EcoSystem, including the cutting-edge Passport Plus, which will feature bluetooth technology and digital control box. To be officially released in 2020, it's safe to say that Kupa Inc. is at the forefront of the e-file industry.
We stay on top of both technological and style trends with recent releases such as the Mermaid and Pixie Passports, undoubtedly two of the most beautiful e-files on the market. The iridescent ombre control boxes that allow nail techs to have fun while celebrating this artistic industry we have all chosen. Nail techs went crazy when we announced the release of these two new colors on social media.
We wish everyone happy holidays and a happy New Year!
With New Year's Resolution in mind, Kupa Inc. is dedicated to helping you improve your craft throughout your career.
