Bentley Systems, the infrastructure engineering software company, has announced the finalists of the 2023 Going Digital Awards in Infrastructure.

The annual awards programme honours the extraordinary work of Bentley software users advancing infrastructure design, construction, and operations throughout the world. Twelve independent jury panels, representing 12 award categories, selected the 36 finalists from over 300 nominations submitted by 235 organisations from 51 countries.

Representatives from the finalists’ organisations will present their projects to a panel of independent judges to determine the winners and meet with global press and industry executives at the 2023 Year in Infrastructure and Going Digital Awards event, which will be held at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, 11—12 October 2023.

Chris Bradshaw, Bentley Systems’ Chief Marketing Officer, said: “We are so excited to be back in Singapore to present the Going Digital Awards finalists in front of our users and those attending virtually, as well as invited press and analysts at the 2023 Year in Infrastructure and Going Digital Awards event. These projects reflect how organisations have improved their workflows by embracing digital technologies to maximise efficiency and cost savings.
