BENTLEY Systems Incorporated is bringing its highly regarded The Year in Infrastructure event to Singapore next year.

The leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions has that The Year in Infrastructure 2017 Conference will be held October 10 to 12 at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre at Marina Bay Sands.

The Singapore location brings the conference to a city recognised globally for its innovation in infrastructure and for the first time to Asia.

“In 2015, Singapore was designated the most ‘Tech-Ready Nation’ by The World Economic Forum’s Global Information Technology Report. In addition to Marina Bay Sands’ unrivaled conferencing facilities and luxurious accommodations is its spectacular structural design and engineering. We are proud to note that this extraordinary building was structurally engineered using Bentley Systems software,”  Bentley Systems’ CEO, Greg Bentley, said.

The structural design of the Marina Bay Sands Resort was done by Arup and was the 2010 Be Inspired Award winner for Innovation in Structural Engineering. It includes three 55-story towers, 2,561 rooms, 1.3 million square feet of meeting space, a 300-store mall, a museum, two large theatres, restaurants, and the world’s largest atrium casino. It is topped by a 1,120-foot-long Sky Park with a capacity for 3,900 people and a 490-foot infinity swimming pool–the world’s largest public cantilevered platform.

The Year in Infrastructure Conference is a unique opportunity to learn about best practices in advancing collaboration and technological innovation among the architectural, engineering, construction, and operations disciplines.
