The LIVE Zone
The LIVE Zone exhibit and demonstration area provides an interactive experience that brings people and technology together in a series of dynamic zones. New for 2012 is the Information Mobility zone, focused on the use of Bentley software, i-models, and iWare and iPad apps to advance information mobility with integrity across multidisciplinary design, engineering, construction, and operational workflows. Project information that is mobile and secure can inform project participants in all roles and deliver value throughout the infrastructure lifecycle.
In the LIVE Zone, hardware and software experts from Bentley partner organizations will be co-located with teams of Bentley product and professional services specialists to demonstrate – in hands-on sessions – the combined value of Bentley, Bentley partner, and third-party developer offerings. The zones include: Information Modeling, Integrated Projects, Intelligent Infrastructure, Visualization, Intelligent Deliverables, CAD Management, Knowledge Resources, and Information Mobility.
