Year in Infrastructure 2018 Awards – Going Digital: advancements in infrastructure
is calling for submissions to the Year in Infrastructure 2018 Awards programme. The awards, which are judged by independent juries of industry experts, recognise infrastructure projects for digital innovations that improve project delivery and/or asset performance. The deadline for submissions is April 30. The Year in Infrastructure Awards (formerly Be Inspired Awards) are an integral part of Bentley’s annual Year in Infrastructure 2018 Conference, which this year takes place October 15-18 in London at the Hilton London Metropole. Users of Bentley software are invited to enter their projects in the Year in Infrastructure Awards program, no matter which phase the project is in – preconstruction/conceptual, design, construction, or in operations. The three finalists chosen for each awards category win a trip to London to attend the Year in Infrastructure 2018 Conference, as guests of Bentley Systems. The finalists will present their projects as part of the conference before the judges, industry thought leaders, and more than 100 members of the media. Every project nominated for a Year in Infrastructure Award receives significant and valuable recognition across the global infrastructure community. Through the Year in Infrastructure Awards program, participants: • Gain global recognition by having their infrastructure projects profiled in Bentley’s Infrastructure Yearbook, which is distributed in print and digital formats to nearly 150,000 key media, government, and industry influencers around the world; in addition, all winners’ and finalists’ projects are featured on Bentley’s website. • Enhance their competitive edge by demonstrating to existing and potential clients the value they add to projects through their digital innovations. • Receive media coverage from global media and support from the Bentley team in marketing and promoting their respective projects to the media. The 19 Year in Infrastructure 2018 Awards categories recognise advancements in going digital for the following categories, several of which are new this year: Bridges, buildings and campuses, communications networks, construction, digital cities, environmental engineering, manufacturing, mining and offshore engineering, power generation, project delivery, rail and transit, reality modelling, roads and highways, road and rail asset performance, structural engineering, utilities and industrial asset performance, utilities transmission and distribution, water and wastewater treatment plants and water, wastewater, and stormwater networks. The theme of the Year in Infrastructure 2018 Conference is Going Digital: Advancements in Infrastructure. Presented by Bentley Institute, the conference features plenary keynotes by Bentley executives and guest speakers, including Sir John Armitt, chair of the United Kingdom’s National Infrastructure Commission. In addition, six industry-specific forums will feature keynotes by leading industry experts, interactive workshops, panel discussions, product demonstrations. These forums will focus on buildings and campuses, digital cities, industrial infrastructure, rail and transit, roads and bridges, utilities and water.
