From LEGO blocks to UFOs to toilets, the weird pursuits that bring people together.

What It Is: Make all the potty puns you want; the toilet business is a flush industry. And much of this annual weekend summit is devoted to trade-show exhibitions that focus on keeping it that way. While some promote the latest in self-cleaning mobile toilets or toilet-paper dispensers, others aim to address a global human rights problem: bringing sanitation and clean water to the 2.5 billion people around the world who still need it.

Who Goes: A veritable who’s who of throne royalty—including some 300 government representatives, engineers, environmentalists, and manufacturers—along with about 5,000 john-obsessed John Does.
