The following outline was prepared by Bentley at the request of the Expert Advisory Panel to communicate Bentley interests in the CIO Workshop in more specific detail.
"Bentley sponsors the CIO event in Europe for four main reasons:
This conference is managed by independent professionals, knowlegable in IT issues but well versed in conference logistics and conduct. They are responsible for selecting the Executive Advisory Panel for the Workshop, facilitating the development of the conference agenda, coordinating Workshop events, and managing the conference administrative processes. Logistic support and technical services are provided by Bentley, but management of the event over all is left entirely up to the Conference Managers and the Expert Advisory Panel.
Readers may also be intersted in noting that the Be Inspired exhibition (details can be found here), which is the Bentley showcase event that highlights outstanding infrastructure projects from around the world, is now held annually back to back with the CIO Workshop. Although the two events are quite different in nature, they are both thought leadership events for the service and infrastructure sectors, and their coordinated scheduling makes it easier for interested CIOs to attend both.
The Year in Infrastructure
Attendees at the CIO Workshop may also be interested in participating in Bentley's Year in Infrastructure event. Held in London this year, and timed to coincide with the 2013 Workshop, the event is a global gathering of leading executives in the world of infrastructure design, construction, and operations. The conference features a series of presentations and interactive workshops exploring the intersection of technology and business drivers, and how they are shaping the future of infrastructure delivery and investment returns.
