Bentley Systems recently announced the project finalists in the 2013 Be Inspired Awards competition, which include several from Australia. The awards honour the extraordinary work of Bentley users improving and sustaining the world’s infrastructure.

Six independent panels of jurors, comprising accomplished Bentley users and distinguished industry experts, selected the 65 finalists from nominations submitted by organisations in 43 countries.

The winners of the Be Inspired Awards will be announced at The Year in Infrastructure 2013 Conference, taking place Oct. 29-31, in London, U.K. This global gathering of executives in infrastructure design, construction, and operations features a series of presentations and interactive sessions exploring the intersection of technology and business drivers, and how they are shaping the future of infrastructure delivery and investment returns.

All those who submitted a nomination in the 2013 Be Inspired Awards competition are also encouraged to attend.

Bentley COO Malcolm Walter said, “We set the bar extremely high for our new Year in Infrastructure 2013 thought leadership conference, from its provocative agenda bringing valuable insights on crucial issues facing infrastructure executives around the globe, to the preeminent thought leaders who will deliver the keynotes and summit presentations.”

Guest keynoters include: Sir John Armitt, chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority for London 2012 and chairman of National Express; Andrew Wolstenholme, OBE, CEO of Crossrail Ltd.; Peter Hansford, chief construction advisor to the U.K. government; and Pedro Miranda, corporate VP, Siemens AG, and head of the Global Center of Competence Cities.

“The one thing outside of our control was, of course, the Be Inspired Awards nominations,” continued Mr Walter. “But, as always, our users came through for us – with remarkable projects that tested the adjudicative prowess of our esteemed jury members. I congratulate all of the finalists, and look forward to their inspiring presentations in the last leg of this very special competition at our conference in London later this month!”

The list of Be Inspired Awards finalists for 2013 is available at the Be Inspired Awards website.
