Loo of the Year 2018

08 February 2018

Entries are now being received for the 2018 Loo of the Year Awards – the annual competition to find the best places ‘to go’ in the UK, the Republic of Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

Many businesses pride themselves on the standard of cleaning and maintenance of the building they occupy or that they are responsible for cleaning. The most frequent place visited by most users of the building is the washrooms. First impressions count and high standard must be achieved consistently if the provider’s, and the associated cleaning or FM company’s, reputation is to be maintained.

How do service providers know how to compare with their competitors and how do they gain recognition? Entry into the annual Loo of the Year Awards is a way of receiving an independent assessment of ‘away from home’ toilet provision and recognition of the standards achieved based on ‘the washroom standard’ for the UK.

Mike Bone, the Awards Managing Director, said “Leading retailers, restaurant and pub chains, visitor attractions, holiday parks, shopping centres, office buildings, local authorities, and importantly the cleaning and FM sector generally, recognise the annual Loo of the Year Awards as a proven, cost effective and independent annual assessment of the standard of their washroom provision management and receive proper recognition through our annual grading scheme. ABM demonstrated in 2017 that an FM services company can achieve the ultimate accolade by winning the overall Loo of the Year Awards Trophy.”

There are thousands of toilets entered annually from all market sectors (there are 61 entry categories). Entries are invited from all categories and every entry receives an unannounced, dedicated, inspection visit. Entries gaining a bronze, silver, gold or platinum award are presented with a certificate – to help them promote their Award-winning facilities to their customers and staff.

There are a range of National and Overall awards and trophies for the very best entries which will be presented at the prestigious Awards Presentation Event to be held on Friday 7th December at the elegant four-star St Johns Hotel in Solihull.

Anyone can enter online via the Awards website: www.loo.co.uk or by contacting information@loo.co.uk. The closing date for entries is 30th June.
