Toilet Innovation Awards open for entries
The 2011 British Toilet Association Innovation Awards, which are now open for entries, will recognise innovation in three key areas of 'away from home' toilet provision: new products, new services and efficiency improvements. The BTA wants to hear about innovation that really improves the use or provision of publicly accessible toilets.
Anyone can nominate a provider or supplier or their own organisation or company by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, 30th September, 2011. Nominations must include details of why the product, service or efficiency should be awarded a BTA Innovation Award. All nominations will be acknowledged.
Entrants will be invited to display their innovative products or services at the BTA Annual Conference on 21st September, before judging is completed.
"Our Annual Conference is a once a year opportunity for providers of 'away from home' toilets to network with product and service suppliers, as well as user group representatives, to discuss best practice and hear about fresh ideas which are already working," says Mike Bone, Director of the BTA. "It also provides an ideal opportunity to recognise the cutting edge of washroom product development and service provision through entries to the BTA's Innovation Awards".
A panel comprising members of the BTA Management Committee will judge each nomination and decide who will gain awards. There may be more than one award in each category, dependent on the number and quality of nominations. The decisions of the judges will be final.
Each award winner will receive a trophy designed specifically for the BTA Innovation Awards and a framed BTA Innovation Award certificate.
The awards will be announced and presented to the winners by a celebrity guest during the 2011 Loo of the Year Awards presentation event on Friday 2nd December at the Chesford Grange Hotel in Kenilworth.
