EXTON, PA, May 14, 2007 -- Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that registration is open at for BE Conference Europe, being held June 10-14 at the Hilton London Metropole in the United Kingdom. Those registering by May 18 will receive an early bird discount that reduces the Learning Program fee by £145 -- from £710 to £565.

The BE Conference, which consistently scores a 99 percent attendee satisfaction rating, is a once-a-year learning opportunity for Bentley user organizations. It offers:
• Keynotes by Bentley executives on future technology and business trends;
• Hundreds of courses and thousands of hours of accredited learning;
• Best practices sessions from experienced peers and technology experts;
• Hundreds of technology updates across all industries and disciplines;
• An exhibition featuring the latest products and services to help support infrastructure projects;
• A variety of networking opportunities.

"Our second BE Conference Europe will be more exciting and offer even more learning than our inaugural conference last year in Prague," said Dana Wormer, director, corporate marketing. "The BE Conference provides an annual setting for comprehensive, discipline-specific, professional training for Bentley users across the spectra of architecture, engineering, construction, operations, and geospatial data management. In addition, it offers users invaluable networking time with their peers, with Bentley product teams, and with technology exhibitors."

Added Wormer, "Best of all, the learning continues well beyond the event as attendees share their newly acquired knowledge with other members of their organizations. This is why learning at the BE Conference translates into more productive organizations that create higher quality projects."

In addition to the many user presentations at BE Conference Europe, there will be 350 courses representing close to 600 learning units of professional training provided by the Bentley Institute. This training will help attendees stay current on technology and best practices and, in doing so, also help them advance their careers.

New Technology Updates
BE Conference Europe attendees will gain insight into Bentley Software's future technologies, including the next release of MicroStation and ProjectWise, code-named "Athens." Innovations at the platform level will include new conceptual design tools, dynamic views that promote efficient and effective design processes using live content and live connections, performance enhancements for distributed projects that make it easier and faster for the entire team to access content, and geo-coordination tools that spatially coalesce content from different sources in different formats using different coordinate systems.

Attendees will also be updated on advancements already available:
• Innovations by MicroStation -- including PDF for architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC), CAD standards configuration and management, collaboration across teams, and the ability to link project information across file formats -- that deliver significant business advantage to multidiscipline teams requiring interoperability, power, and accessibility in their software portfolio;
• ProjectWise -- the scalable collaboration system used for connecting people and information across distributed enterprises that includes: ProjectWise Navigator, a visual collaboration client for project review and analysis; ProjectWise StartPoint, which provides entry-level collaboration using Microsoft SharePoint; and ProjectWise Integration Server, which enables project-wide collaboration and content management for distributed teams sharing distributed content and includes servers to accelerate content access, automate the creation of intelligent, portable deliverables, and to facilitate integration with Microsoft Office SharePoint;
• Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions -- including automated design and production processes with Bentley Architecture; integrated analysis, design, documentation and fabrication of structural systems with Bentley Structural, RAM, STAAD, and ProSteel; building services design and documentation with Bentley Building Mechanical Systems and Bentley Building Electrical Systems; advanced associative parametric computational design with the MicroStation GenerativeComponents Extension; and effective operational management of space and assets with Bentley Facilities;
• DigitalPlant solutions -- including AutoPLANT XM Edition; PlantSpace XM Edition; ProjectWise Navigator; AutoPLANT Structural; Bentley's approach to workflow challenges during front-end engineering; rules-based P&IDs; ProjectWise Lifecycle Server interoperability with 2D and 3D design tools; ProjectWise V8 XM Edition; and Bentley's newly acquired Design Power PlantWise, an automatic pipe routing and plant layout tool used by EPCs during the initial phases of a project for a quick visual of the plant and early cost estimate;
• Civil Project Lifecycle -- including details on advancing to a more complete road lifecycle; leveraging data into construction; site development and design technology; roadway design technology; surveying; and water resources technology;
• Geospatial solutions -- including Bentley Map and XML feature modeling; cadastral applications via Bentley Cadastre; Bentley Geospatial Server; building public Web sites with Bentley Geo Web Publisher; technology solutions for municipal government; communication industry solutions for planning, engineering, and operations; utility solutions for distribution and power delivery with Bentley Electric and Bentley Expert Designer; and water and wastewater engineering, modeling, and management.
