Ever been on a holiday, enjoying all the sights and sounds and get it all ruined by a less than stellar visit to the loo? It is no mystery that we place cleanliness as one of the top priorities when we are aboard, and we won’t want to miss out on some of the most beautiful places on Earth just because of that! Part raising awareness, part having a bit of fun,¬† will be launching the “Toilet Tourism Awards” on UN World Toilet Day, 19 November 2016. The overall winner (for the best loo) will recieve a AU$2,000 donation to World Toilet Day in their name and a copy of MTR Research publication in 2017 (worth AU$8,000) and access to tourism research events.

There will be six catergories; Overall Winner, Best Tourism Economic Contributor (for when people stop at a toilet in a destination and stay on to spend more than a penny), Best Location (where the toilets have views and maybe considered an attraction in themselves), Best Design (architectural brilliance in toilets, visual design and creativity), Best Accessible Toilet, Quirkiest Toilet Experience (relating to local heritage, fun, or otherwise noteworthy).

The fun will last till 1 April 2017, where toilet owners across the world can simply enter by requesting a form from Winners will be annouced at the Travel and Tourism Research Association international conference in Quebec, Canada on 22 June 2017.

So, who’s ready for the tourism industry’s own Game of “Thrones”?
