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 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.

Another highlight of the Year in Infrastructure Conference is Bentley’s annual Be Inspired Awards competition which brings together infrastructure professionals from around the globe to share innovative projects in design, engineering, construction and operations. Since 2004 the Be Inspired Awards program has recognized more than 2,000 infrastructure projects worldwide. The program, open to all users of Bentley software, is a unique competition — the only of its kind that is global in scope and comprehensive in categories covered, encompassing all types of infrastructure projects.
