The Frank Vale Award has been awarded annually since 1993 to acknowledge talented young people within the industry, who have demonstrated to their employers that they have the potential to become future leaders, and make a positive contribution to the development of the Australian Cold Chain Industry.

The 2015 Frank Vale Award Winner will be announced at the RWTA National Conference and Exhibition Gala Dinner at the Stamford Grand Adelaide (Glenelg) South Australia on Friday 28th August 2015.


Participation in the Frank Vale Award is a rewarding process regardless of whether you win the award. State Finalists and their partners travel as special guests of the RWTA to attend the 2015 RWTA Conference and Exhibition to be held at the Stamford Grand Adelaide (Glenelg) South Australia from 26-28 August 2015. Travel expenses, conference registration, accommodation and meal expenses of State Finalist’s and their partners are met by the RWTA.

The 2015 Frank Vale Award Winner will receive a $5,000 travel prize to attend the Global Cold Chain Alliance (IARW/WFLO) 125th Convention & Expo to be held at the Cosmopolitan - Las Vegas, Nevada USA from 9th to 13th April 2016.  This prize is generously sponsored by Retracom Contracting.

Participating in the Award process and attending the RWTA Conference and Exhibition also provides State Finalists with an outstanding opportunity to broaden their knowledge and understanding of the Australian Cold Chain Industry, along with an opportunity to meet many of the key players.  Past finalists agree that this experience has been invaluable.
