Bentley Systems announces finalists for the 2021 Going Digital Awards in Infrastructure

Bentley Systems has announced the finalists for the 2021 Going Digital Awards in Infrastructure. The annual awards program honours the extraordinary work of Bentley software users advancing infrastructure design, construction, and operations throughout the world.

Sixteen independent jury panels selected the 57 finalists from nearly 300 nominations submitted by more than 230 organisations from 45 countries encompassing 19 categories.

Winners of the student Future Infrastructure Star Challenge will also be announced. This challenge provided students from around the world a platform to develop a concept or an idea of how they can change the world with infrastructure. Five independent jury panels of Bentley experts selected the Top 10 finalists from 144 project submissions from 61 countries representing different infrastructure domains. Winners will be selected by a panel of Bentley and external expert judges.

New this year, all winners will be revealed during keynote presentations on December 2, 2021, as part of the Year in Infrastructure. This series of virtual events runs from November 1 through December 2, 2021; see below for highlights.

Chris Bradshaw, Bentley’s chief marketing officer, said the decision to keep the event virtual this year aimed for everyone’s safety due to the ongoing pandemic.

“Our users continue to demonstrate their resilience through the quality of the nearly 300 nominations for the Going Digital in Infrastructure Awards program. We are excited to honour our users’ extraordinary work from around the world,” he said.

“We hope you will join us for the Year in Infrastructure virtual event that includes important insights and perspectives from key industry executives and thought leaders sharing with attendees the latest on infrastructure trends, sustainability goals, and digital advancements.”
