Amsterdam: Geospatial Media and Communications is pleased to introduce Bentley Systems as the Associate Sponsor for Geospatial World Forum 2019. The event is to take place from 2-4 April 2019 in Taets Art & Event Park, Amsterdam.
Bentley Systems is a global leader in providing engineers, architects, geospatial professionals, constructors, and owner-operators with comprehensive software solutions for advancing the design, construction, and operations of infrastructure.
Ted Lamboo, Senior Vice President - Strategic Partners at Bentley will address the audience at the conference, along with Bentley’s global partner, Microsoft, represented by Jose Antonio Ondiviela, the Western Europe Government / SmartCities Solutions Director. Bentley will also be showcasing its solutions at the conference’s exhibit area.
“Digitalization is an important path to address smart city agendas and requires an infrastructure information platform that connects people, processes and technology,” says Ton de Vries, Senior Director of Business Development at Bentley Systems, “With a digital city twin, cities can make information available to the right people at the right time in an immersive and actionable environment that is scalable and fit-for-purpose. Bentley’s OpenCities Connected Data Environment brings together CAD, GIS, BIM, CityGML and other legacy data into a digital twin, for planning, design, construction and operation of a city infrastructure, serving as a foundation for many smart cities use cases.”
“Bentley provides information mobility throughout the infrastructure lifecycle, leveraged by users from across disciplines. We believe both Bentley and its partners and users will benefit from the diverse content at the conference, as we endeavor to create a cross-industry interaction and collaborative platform,” says Anamika Das, Vice President, Outreach & Business Development at Geospatial Media and Communications.
