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 through 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:
