Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, today announced that registration is now open for The Year in Infrastructure 2014 Conference, being held Nov. 4-6 at the Hilton London Metropole in London, U.K. This global gathering of leading figures in the world of infrastructure design, construction, and operations features a series of presentations and interactive workshops that explore the intersection of technology and business drivers, and how they are shaping the future of infrastructure delivery and investment returns.
In addition to keynote presentations by Bentley senior management, including CEO Greg Bentley and founder and CTO Keith Bentley, this year’s agenda features an impressive lineup of special guest speakers. Among them is Ed Merrow, founder and president of Independent Project Analysis, Inc., world-renowned expert on capital projects, and author of Industrial Megaprojects: Concepts, Strategies, and Practices for Success.
Chris Barron, Bentley Systems vice president, corporate communications, said, “The Year in Infrastructure Conference is an event like no other, with thought leaders from around the world sharing ideas and best practices for advancing the design, delivery, and operations of infrastructure – and I mean infrastructure in the broadest sense, encompassing all of our built environment. Its agenda has been carefully developed for management-level executives in architectural and/or engineering firms, construction companies, and owner-operator and government organizations.
“Attendees will learn about the latest innovations helping drive success, including higher ROIs, in today’s global community of infrastructure organizations. Among the technology innovations being shared are effective strategies for advancing BIM that have been proven on some of the most challenging projects around the world. These strategies are helping Bentley users achieve better-performing assets through an increased depth of information modeling, and better-performing projects through an increased breadth of information mobility. But what makes The Year in Infrastructure Conference so unique is the peer-to-peer interaction and networking that take place between the programmed sessions, and, indeed, we have designed the agenda to foster that level of engagement.”
The Year in Infrastructure 2014 Conference will include:
Industry-specific Forums that provide infrastructure
professionals an ideal opportunity to interact with their peers and
industry visionaries and learn about best practices and advances in
