Bentley User Group Sweden


The Bentley User Group Sweden had existed and folded years ago.  This year it was resurrected with the help of Bentley's Industry Sales Director, Mattias Hemmingsson.  For the first year back on the map, the event was a huge success with a turnout of over 100 people!

The day began with a great turnout at registration. Users were able to gather and network during the breakfast before the agenda began.  Opening the event, new user group chairman Thomas Vincent, Sweco Infrastructure, welcomed the users.  Thomas was then followed by the following presentations:

  • Bentley Update - Mattias Hemmingsson, Industry Sales Director, Bentley Systems
  • Innovation in MicroStation -  Chris Bober, Director Product Management, Bentley Systems 
  • New technologies to assist our users in today's 3D world -  Stefan Sigvardsson, Industry Sales Director, Bentley Systems

After a short break, users broke into one of 4 SIGs (Special Interest Groups), Building, Plant, Civil, and Rail.  The SIGs offered something for everyone in their own field of expertise.  The SIGs were followed by hands-on experience with the software, computers were set up in the main hall for users to utilize and request help from Bentley colleagues. The hands-on session was followed by a panel discussion/Q&A session with Bentley and the users.

For the first event of the new user group, it was a huge success.  Feedback from the users was great, which proved that there was a large interested level to continue the growth of the SIGs as well as the user group for future events.

I really enjoyed myself meeting the new group and celebrating that evening at the Absolute Ice Bar.  A lot of hard work was done in just 3 weeks to pull off a great event.  Great job to the officers and all at Bentley that helped to make this event a success.
