Bentley Systems, a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, will hold its next Year in Infrastructure Conference in Asia for the first time. The event will take place from 10 to 12 October 2017 at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre (Marina Bay Sands), Singapore.
“I have long admired Singapore for its innovative use of technology in the delivery and operation of infrastructure, and now it is leading the world with its BIM advancements,” said Greg Bentley, CEO of Bentley Systems.
“In 2015, Singapore was designated the most ‘Tech-Ready Nation’ by The World Economic Forum’s Global Information Technology Report. Adding to Marina Bay Sands’ unrivaled conferencing facilities and luxurious accommodations is its spectacular structural design and engineering. We are proud to note that this extraordinary building was structurally engineered using Bentley Systems software.”
The structural design of the Marina Bay Sands was done by Arup and was the 2010 Be Inspired Award winner for Innovation in Structural Engineering.
The Year in Infrastructure Conference is a global gathering of leading executives in the world of infrastructure design, construction and operations. It 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 asset performance.
The conference is a great opportunity to learn about best practices in advancing collaboration and technological innovation among the engineering, architectural, construction and operations disciplines, and benefit from networking opportunities with industry peers and thought leaders from around the world.
The Be Inspired Awards programme is the highlight of the event and will celebrate nominees in 17 BIM Advancement categories, recognising the juries and projects at the annual Be Inspired Awards ceremony that closes the event.
Bentley Systems has contributed to the advancement of infrastructure in Southeast Asia over the years through many projects. Most recently, the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) used Bentley software to create and maintain a high-resolution 3D model of the entire country as part of its Smart Nation initiative.
The Year in Infrastructure 2017 Conference will include a new Alliance Partner Pavilion, featuring live application and technology presentations from Microsoft, Siemens, Topcon and Bureau Veritas. Attendees can meet with Bentley’s Alliance Partners to learn how we provide advanced solutions – whether it is leveraging reality modelling to converge engineering and inspection, connecting workflows for constructioneering, offering a best-in-class cloud strategy that encompasses private and public clouds and on-premises deployments, or enabling the digital enterprise by supporting open access to the IoT.
