The story behind Durafest

It all started a few years ago with the Original Cupkeeper, our popular cup holder used for large events: It’s a compact, well designed and durable cup holder for six cups in one hand. No more cardboard waste on the festival meadow!

When we saw the one-inch layer of disposable cups at the end of a rock festival day, we understood that we had to move to the next level beyond just cup holders alone.
During the covid 19 pandemic and the additional regulations on public events on food consumption, we accelerated the development of our sustainable concept for food solutions in the second half of 2020.

Moreover, since we already had the cup holder, the move to durable cups was a logical step. So we started investigating this new challenge intensively.

Looking to the market we noticed that the main challenge is based on financial challenges and a logistic model of producing, selling, renting, cleaning and storing durable cups.

At Durafest we start from a customer centric approach. By listening carefully to the challenges of our customers, we build tailor-made all-in solutions for their event, no matter how big or small it is.
