About Be Inspired: Thought Leadership in Infrastructure
The world’s leading practitioners gathered this week at Be Inspired, Bentley’s premier thought leadership and networking event, in Amsterdam, Netherlands. They shared the best practices behind the successful realization of their current projects and explored new ways to respond to the challenges driving today’s business. Also in attendance were 80 journalists from around the world, who additionally participated in a special media briefing on November 7.
Be Inspired, an intimate, invitation-only event, featured presentations by the Be Inspired Awards finalists as well as executive roundtables focusing on critical issues in business, technology, and practice facing infrastructure professionals around the world. It culminated with an awards ceremony last night recognizing outstanding achievement and innovation in infrastructure design, construction, and operations by winners selected from 57 project finalists by five independent panels of jurors. In total, nominations from 270 organizations in 42 countries were submitted in this year’s awards program.
This annual event provides a unique forum for senior-level executives to learn about the innovations driving the development and operations of the world’s top infrastructure projects. It also enables them to engage with other industry leaders in interactive discussions on topics of importance to the business of sustaining infrastructure.
