ZOZO Championship 2019 PGA Tour

Location: Inzai, Greater Tokyo, Japan

An incredible first for ZooLoos, working in Japan. Our Zoovac washrooms spent 6 weeks at sea, survived Typhoon Hagibis and landed in Toyko ready for the team to install.

Employee Experience:

“We set off at 5am unsure where our final destination would be, Typhoon Hagibis was set to hit Tokyo the day we landed so pre-flight nerves were definitely higher than usual. We ended up spending a few nights in Shanghai waiting for the Typhoon to pass, China was certainly eye-opening. Several domestic flights later we finally arrived in Tokyo. Our hotel was great but I think we did forget that Japan tend to do things on the smaller side, you’ll see what we mean by the picture of Reece in the bath tub.”

“Our first day of install was mad, the golf course was huge, we had the tour and Health and Safety briefing via golf buggy. Despite the language barrier the crew were very efficient and we managed to install 5 areas of Zoovac in 5 days when the original time frame was double this. The install was fairly routine other than unloading the washrooms one by one from the container via forklift, onto a flatbed then driving a few miles up to a marquee 4m above ground. It was certainly challenging but we rose to it.”

“Having finished ahead of schedule we travelled into Tokyo City to be typical tourists. We visited the famous Skytree, the tallest building in Tokyo City, the Shinto shrine, Shinjuku City where the buzzing clubs and karaoke rooms can be found and Shibuya, famous for its scramble crossing. We ate some pretty weird and wonderful things, sea urchins and sea slugs, we aren’t desperate to try them again but the ramen and fried chicken was incredible. Watching the Rugby England match with locals and our colleagues from MTD at Golden Gui was very surreal, but the Highballs went down well. 

The Zozo Championship itself went pretty smoothly, unfortunately the aftermath of Typhoon Hagibis was on everyone’s minds and the rainfall was pretty horrendous forcing some rounds to be cancelled. We did catch a glimpse of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy though. After 4 weeks away we were glad to get on our flight home but certainly wouldn’t pass up an opportunity to go back, Japan was fantastic and the food was incredible.”

SailGP 2019

Location: Cowes, Isle of Wight

With extreme weather conditions Australia delivered a masterclass in sailing, whilst ZooLoos delivered a masterclass in posh loos… as always!

Employee Experience:

“I have worked for ZooLoos for over 4 years and have travelled to many locations all over the country and abroad but it was nice to put my feet up whilst on the ferry to Cowes and take in the scenery, although the laptop was always open. ZooLoos had never supplied toilets to a sailing event before so it was refreshing to be in a new atmosphere but alongside a client of ours we work with regularly. Although Zoo Crew are always prepared for installs we weren’t quite expecting the adverse weather conditions we experienced, good job we packed extra layers and managed to install the ZooVac washrooms efficiently to avoid any soggy bottoms. The weather did force a few races to be cancelled but I did get to see The Great Britain SailGP Team compete, perks of the job!”

Cartier Queen's Cup Tournament 2019

Location: The Guards Polo Club

Our beautiful ZooVac range installed into another famous event at The Guards Polo, this is the first time we have done this event and we hope to take our exquisite washrooms back next year.

Employee Experience:

“The Guards Polo Club was magnificent, I’ve been to so many prestigious events all over the country however this was something else. Our luxury washrooms have been supplied to the Queen quite a few times, by now she must know our brand! So much so that I had to move the work vehicle out of sight as she thought it wasn’t in-keeping with the Polo grounds… when the Queen asks you do! Until next time Liz…”

UEFA Champions League Final 2018

Location: Olympisky Stadium, Ukraine

Providing our luxury ZooVac toilets and vanities for hospitality at the 2018 UEFA Champions league final and their sponsors in Kiev.

Employee Experience:

“I had a great time working over in Ukraine for the UEFA Champions league, we have worked for them before at the Champions league final in Cardiff last year which was equally as exciting. There was a really good vibe in Kiev and everyone was extremely friendly and hospitable. We managed to have some free time to explore Kiev and got to visit the Olympisky stadium pre- match which was amazing! The food is also excellent (and the beer!) All the crew that we worked with over there were amazing and we felt like a family by the end of the job, would love to do it all over again.”
