Bentley Announces Information Modeling Webinar Series


Jun 12, 2009

Bentley Systems Inc.'s Be Connected online seminar series,  now open for registration at,  aims to give architects, engineers, builders, geospatial professionals, and owner-operators a chance to learn about applying information modeling. The free online event, which takes the place of this year’s Be Conference, begins June 23.
“With over 150 best practices and product seminars, the Be Connected online seminar series is the best way for both practitioners and business leaders in infrastructure to keep up with the latest trends in practice and technology, without the time and expense required when traveling to a conference,” said Bentley’s chief marketing officer, Ed Mueller. “This is ‘professional conference-quality’ content, brought to your desktop at no charge.
“If you are an AECO or geospatial professional serious about staying on top of your game, Be Connected is an ideal solution. It is Bentley’s response to the global challenge of finding new ways to create value without adding costs.”
Be Connected offers two types of online seminars:

• Best Practices Seminars – Presented by infrastructure professionals, these sessions are said to bring a project perspective on best practices for the design, construction, and operation of specific types of infrastructure projects, including a series of seminars on each of the following: bridges, cadastre and land development; communications; electric and gas utilities; high-performance buildings; mining and metals; oil and gas; rail and transit; roads; and water and wastewater.

• Product Seminars – Presented by Bentley’s top product executives and designed for both current and prospective users, these technology-focused sessions demonstrate the latest features and capabilities of Bentley’s comprehensive V8i software portfolio for sustaining infrastructure.
The first presentation of these hour-long seminars will include a live Q&A teleconference. Each seminar will then be offered OnDemand, allowing participants to attend multiple sessions at times of their choosing. In addition, participants can join discussion groups about the topics presented in the seminars on the Be Communities professional networking Web site.
