The World Toilet Summit is a unique global event that brings together various sanitation stakeholders  to collaborate on innovative inventions, projects and products in the sanitation sector under one roof. It is an annual event initiated by the World Toilet Organization and jointly organised with the host government.

Our Approach

By establishing a global platform for toilet associations, non-profit and for-profit entities and private sector stakeholders to share best practices in the sanitation sector, the World Toilet Summit aims to empower delegates, exhibitors and sponsors to exchange knowledge, expertise and resources in scaling up impact and innovation in the sanitation marketplace.


The World Toilet Summit has successfully held 15 World Toilet Summits in various continents since its inception in 2001. Held in major cities worldwide including Singapore, Seoul, Taipei, Beijing, Belfast, Moscow, New Delhi, Macau, Hainan, Philadelphia and Solo, an estimated number of 10, 000 delegates have attended the summit.

World Toilet Summit & Expo 2016 was held in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia from 27 – 29 October. More than 750 delegates from 11 countries attended the summit to discuss issues including proper waste management, sanitation technology and solutions, the unique challenges of rural and urban sanitation, public hygiene awareness strategies, the role toilets play in improving tourism, and gender issues surrounding toilet access.
