Toilet providers, cleaning and FM companies seek recognition in the 'toilet oscars'
The 2016 Loo of the Year Awards grading has now been completed following inspection of 'away from home' toilets throughout the UK and the Republic of Ireland. High standards of cleaning and maintenance performed by in-house cleaners, cleaning contractors and FM companies were evidenced during their inspection visits.
Use of the latest products and processes and the improvements in design and the quality of fixtures and fittings are also recognised. Users' needs are the basis of the Loo of the Year Awards judging criteria - requiring attractive as well as functional facilities to meet all of each user's personal requirements. Hygienic services that minimise the risk of infection transfer, whilst also saving energy, continue to become more prevalent.
There were high levels of entries across 60 entry categories with shopping centre entries continuing to increase each year. The corporate entrants recognise the value of gaining prestige and recognition of their brand, and importantly their employees' efforts, as a result of achieving awards. Entrants also use the Awards grading to benchmark their toilet provision performance against competitors and can use the awards success as a real benefit when in negotiations with customers and prospects.
Every entry was inspected and graded by a team of trained and experienced inspectors against established criteria for each and every type of toilet.
The 2016 winners are currently being advised of the prestigious Loo of the Year Award they achieved and National and UK/Republic of Ireland Awards will be presented at the excellent daytime Presentation Event on Friday 2nd December at the elegant four star St Johns Hotel in Solihull. In addition to the presentation of the Awards, there will be a sparkling wine reception, four course lunch with wine, supplier exhibition, entertainment by international comedian Peter Piper and unrivalled networking opportunities.
