Bentley Systems Incorporated today announced BE Conference Europe 2006, being held June 11-15 at the Hilton Prague, Czech Republic. This new learning opportunity for users and their managers in the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) community is modeled after the highly successful BE Conference held annually in the United States. The decision to hold two BE Conferences next year was based on high interest from users in Europe and the Middle East for an annual major training event in their geography.
BE Conference 2005 drew more than 2000 attendees from 644 organizations and 43 countries to the Baltimore Convention Center, exceeding last year's attendance figures by more than 20 percent. Moreover, it maintained the 99 percent attendee satisfaction rating achieved by the 2004 conference.
This "time for learning" offered attendees more than 350 information-rich sessions, including keynotes presented by Bentley executives and industry luminaries, more than 300 Learning Units of professional training sponsored by the Bentley Institute, 45 new technology update sessions, and 116 best practice sessions. Attendees sharpened their skills and expanded their knowledge through these sessions as they collectively earned more than 11,000 Bentley Institute Learning Units.
BE Conference Europe 2006 will provide attendees with four days of the same learning opportunities - opportunities that will enable them to better themselves, better their organizations, and better the ways they can improve the world's infrastructure. Rounding out the experience will be a variety of special events offering attendees time to network and socialize with peers and friends, and an exhibit area featuring some of the latest AEC software and hardware products for the building, plant, civil, and geospatial markets.

BE Conference Europe 2006 will draw attendees from AE firms, architecture firms, design-build firms, engineering consultants, facility owner-operators, transportation ministries, rail companies, site engineering firms, communications and utilities firms, governments and cadastres, defense contractors, public works departments, plant engineering, procurement and construction contractors (EPCs), and plant owner-operators. These professionals will include users of MicroStation, ProjectWise, and AutoPLANT, as well as ESRI, Land Desktop, and PDS users.
