Recognising The Very Best Toilets For 27 Years

Nominations and entries are now being received for the 2014 Loo of the Year Awards – the annual competition to fi nd the best places ‘to go’ in the UK, including The Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

Media interest in public toilets is at high levels as their number has fallen by over 40% in the past decade. However, there are thousands of other ‘away from home’ toilets entered annually from all market sectors (there are 60 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 certifi cate – to help them promote their award-winning facilities to their customers and staff.

Mike Bone, the Awards Managing Director, said: “Leading retailers,

restaurant and pub chains, visitor attractions, holiday parks, shopping centres, local authorities, and the cleaning/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 toilet provision management, and receive proper recognition through our annual grading scheme.”

There are a range of National and UK awards and trophies for the very best entries, which will be presented at the Awards Presentation Event to be held on Friday 5th December, at the elegant four star St Johns Hotel in Solihull.

The Attendant of the Year Awards form part of Loo of the Year Awards, but relate specifi cally to the cleaning staff that look after facilities, rather than the loos themselves. All attendants and/or cleaning staff will automatically be entered for an Attendant of the Year Award.

Agenda Released For Cleaning Products Europe 2014

Smithers Apex have announced the complete agenda for Cleaning Products Europe 2014, taking place on 25th-27th March in Manchester, featuring expert speakers from all levels of the supply chain – from household and I&I cleaning product manufacturers, to chemical suppliers and regulatory bodies, and even to retail representatives.

The cleaning products market continues to grow year on year – global sales of household cleaning products are predicted to reach $147bn in 2017, and this presents numerous ongoing opportunities for those in the cleaning products market. In order to take advantage of these opportunities, companies need to stay ahead of regulatory, environmental, societal, consumer and core industry developments and trends.

The Cleaning Products Europe agenda is focused on providing a 360˚ view of these forthcoming developments set to impact or


disrupt the industry. Featuring perspectives from external stakeholders, the conference will begin by setting the mutual vision for the industry, including presentations from the European Commission, DG Environment, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and WWF.

Unilever and P&G will once again co- chair the conference and give their insights on sanitisation and hygiene consumer benefi ts, regulatory and safety considerations, and sustainable consumer behaviour. The machinery sector, I&I sector and textile industry will also be present, to provide updates on their sectors’ trends and opportunities.

The conference will present an integrated approach to working across the value chain, inspiring attendees to assess how their business is set up for the future. Examples of successful industry collaborations feature on the

agenda, and include a study on cotton processing from DuPont and Huntsman, in addition to BASF presenting on competition and cooperation in shaping the sustainability roadmap of the home care and I&I industry.

Delegates can also participate in a pre-conference workshop focusing on regulatory matters affecting the cleaning products industry, and providing an overview of all relevant regulatory issues for both a biocidal and non-biocidal product.

With such a diverse agenda and attendees expected from all levels of the supply chain, plus extended networking opportunities, attendance of Cleaning Products Europe will not only provide you with high level content, but also a great chance to make many new contacts and customers.
