Bentley to showcase advancements in infrastructure asset management in Singapore

Bentley Systems will host its Year in Infrastructure 2017 Conference, Oct. 10-12, 2017 in Singapore. The conference will take place at Sands Expo and Convention Centre at Marina Bay Sands, a world-class hotel and conference facility, and one of the most iconic buildings in Asia. The Singapore location brings the conference to a city recognized globally for its innovation in infrastructure and for the first time to Asia.

Bentley Systems’ Year in Infrastructure Conference draws a global mix of executives in architecture and engineering, construction, owner-operators, municipal employees and members of the media to examine the future of technology and innovation in infrastructure design, construction, operations and asset management.

The Year in Infrastructure Conference is geared toward professionals involved in the design, delivery or operations of infrastructure. Encompassing all types of infrastructure, the week provides attendees an array of discussions focused on applying building information modeling (BIM) technology to deliver the best performing buildings, bridges, roads, power plants, water utility networks, treatment plants, mines and other infrastructure projects on time, on budget and with less risk.

In addition to modern applications of technology for infrastructure projects, a central theme of the Year in Infrastructure Conference is new ways of thinking about using technology in business. A number of presentations will highlight these points over the course of separate forums including Building and Facilities; Oil, Gas, Offshore and Mining; Rail and Road; Utilities; and Visions of the Future.
