This interactive exhibit and demonstration area offers additional opportunities for learning provided by Bentley product and professional services experts as well as The Bentley LEARNing Conference sponsors.

Commenting on The Bentley LEARNing Conference, George Church, Bentley SVP, LEARNservices, said, “To focus our annual Philadelphia user conference on the needs of our users and their desire for product learning and in-person networking, we have removed corporate keynotes and have transformed our traditional LIVE Zone into a LEARNing Zone – to make more time and space available for hands-on learning and professional training. Beyond providing courses led by our highly rated Bentley Institute instructors, The Bentley LEARNing Conference uniquely features courses taught by ‘adjunct’ instructors from our user and partner organizations. 

“Best of all, we will also take this learning online and on the road so that users can readily take advantage of this valuable social learning opportunity around the globe. All year round, we will bring to our users a growing number of events that combine Bentley Institute learning with the professional networking Bentley users enjoy so much. In addition, we look forward to our expanded Be Inspired event, which has been newly named The Year in Infrastructure 2013 Conference. This larger event for thought leaders will be held October 28-31 in London and feature a broad offering of industry leader keynotes, including by Bentley executives, addressing opportunities, trends, and challenges in the business of sustaining infrastructure.”
