    Advancing Smart Cities
    Reality Capture and Consumption for Smart Infrastructure


    Technology is the enabler for smart cities around the globe, spanning mega projects to smaller scale initiatives that focus on streamlining processes, realizing efficiency gains, and improving services to its citizens. The advancement of reality modeling – the process of capturing existing site conditions with the use of digital photographs or point cloud data – has offered a renewed focus on the potential for delivering against smart city objectives. This session will look at how reality modeling integrates with other business workflows and how it can be applied to a variety of disciplines.

    Oil and Gas
    Integrated Project Delivery for Oil and Gas & Heavy Industries


    Learn about the challenges facing the oil and gas industry and how leading global EPCs are succeeding by going digital with Bentley technologies. See for yourself the latest applications and discuss with peers how you might best adopt them. In this session, you’ll explore how the connected data environments of ProjectWise and AssetWise can enable the sharing of digital engineering models from CAPEX to OPEX, optimizing the TOTEX for owner operators. Hear about the latest developments in reality modeling to capture the “as is” conditions of existing assets that help the revamp, retire, or replace decision making process and see demonstrations of the latest design and analysis applications that enable you to reduce costs and streamline project delivery.

    Power Generation
    Integrated Project Delivery for the Energy and Power Generation Industries


    Bentley technical experts will conduct a series of on-site demonstrations of integrated technology solutions, including Bentley ProjectWise CONNECT edition, reality modeling, and three-dimensional factory design, construction and delivery. Explore how this integrated project delivery solution addresses best practices for the energy and power generation industries, maximizing the benefits of creating a full lifecycle for users.

    Process Manufacturing
    Integrated Project Delivery for Process Plants & Heavy Industries


    EPC firms are increasingly going digital supported by Bentley’s technology to reduce costs and optimizing the performance of existing assets. The connected data environments of ProjectWise and AssetWise, together with reality modeling and applications that create and maintain digital engineering models across the life of the asset, are enabling this transformation. Hear about the challenges facing the process manufacturing industry and how leading global EPCs are succeeding by going digital with Bentley technologies. See for yourself the latest applications and discuss with peers how you might best adopt them.

    Road and Rail Transportation
    Transforming the Transportation Software Landscape with OpenRoads and OpenRail


    Governments around the world invest in infrastructure to combat the problems associated with population growth, urbanization, and climate change. While some regions invest heavily in new projects, others target efficient maintenance and the rehab of existing infrastructure to improve reliability and reduce congestion. In this session, you will learn how Bentley’s common data environment, with its significant footprint in rail and transit, allows you to leverage information at a component level throughout the lifecycle from planning, through detail design and construction, to operations to deliver increased safety, service, and reliability.

    Water and Wastewater
    Smarter Water and Wastewater Infrastructure


    With reduced budgets, changing climates, rapid urban expansion, and a concerted focus on TOTEX, the water industry faces huge challenges to deliver on critical goals. This seminar will look at how technology is key to the comprehensive management of urban water infrastructure including how a 3D collaborative approach to design yields significant gains for users and how the rise of reality modeling provides new opportunities for plant design. Learn techniques to improve system reliability and efficiency while reducing operational, construction, or maintenance project costs.
