Bentley to discuss ‘Accelerating to Infrastructure Intelligence’ at flagship infrastructure event in Singapore.

Keynotes and industry breakout sessions at Bentley Systems’ flagship infrastructure event in Singapore this week will be available for livestreaming and on-demand viewing by engineering and construction professionals across the world.

A range of virtual keynotes and industry-specific breakout sessions at Bentley’s 2023 Year in Infrastructure and Going Digital Awards event will be available via livestreaming or on demand from Singapore on 12 October 12 2023.

The sessions will feature perspectives from Bentley executives and industry experts on ways to accelerate the infrastructure sector’s digital maturity and readiness. Issues to be covered include how digital-twin-powered, AI-driven technological advancements and best practices are shaping the future of infrastructure delivery to help the world address its biggest challenges, including the climate crisis, talent skills gaps, and rapid urban population growth.

The in-person 2023 Year in Infrastructure and Going Digital Awards event will be held at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore on 11-12 October 2023, where finalists of Bentley’s Going Digital Awards will also present their projects. The highly-regarded global competition celebrates digital advancements in infrastructure to spur innovation and best practices in engineering, design, construction, operations, and project delivery, while celebrating the exceptional work of organisations that contribute to the advancement of the world’s infrastructure.

Bentley speakers for the keynote addresses are Greg Bentley, chief executive officer, Julien Moutte, chief technology officer and Mike Campbell, chief product officer. From 8am to 8:45am (GMT+8) attendees can join Bentley CEO Greg Bentley and special guest Dr Victor Khoo, director of survey and geomatics at the Singapore Land Authority, who directs Singapore’s world-leading digital twin initiatives, for Bentley’s annual review of learnings from the Going Digital Awards nominations and finalists where he will extrapolate from these insights to share his expectations about the value of accumulating infrastructure intelligence, especially with the compounding potential of AI.

From 9.15am to 10am (GMT+8), CTO Julien Moutte and CPO Mike Campbell will give their insights on accelerating to infrastructure intelligence. With data as the foundation and digital capabilities – such as cloud services, digital twins, and open standards – as the building blocks, the infrastructure sector is accelerating its ability to adapt and thrive in an ever-changing environment. Digital readiness and maturity are crucial to infrastructure intelligence, at a time when the sector and world need them more than ever.
