From Frankfurt to London – V8i is gaining momentum!

The celebration continues... After the fantastic launch of V8i, which you can still catch via the Global Live Broadcast Videos I headed off to Frankfurt for the first in a series of Be Seminars held in Europe.

The excitement of the V8i launch continued today as attendees in Frankfurt witnessed first-hand the industry’s most comprehensive software portfolio ever assembled.

Frankfurt focused on Bentley’s oil and gas solution, as well as building and factory solutions. Frankfurt was a fitting place to showcase these solutions as it has such a rich history in these industries. Besides hearing about industry best practices, users also got to experience the new versions of MicroStation and ProjectWise. The hands-on test drives proved very successful with users as they clammered to get their hands on the new products.

Just like the V8i launch in Philly, the Be Seminar in Frankfurt was a hit with the users who attended. Tomorrow I fly back to the UK for the London Be Seminar on Thursday. I have to admit to real excitement at being back on my "manor" - london term for "home ground."

The London seminar features COO Malcolm Walter, who will introduce Bentley’s vision of sustainability and the vital role that infrastructure plays in creating a sustainable world before celebrating a series of infrastructure case studies which illustrate what Malcolm calls “ROI3” which stands for return on Investment, Interoperability, and Innovation.

Carey Mann, VP of Software Solutions, follows malcolm to introduce V8i - including the new versions of MicroStation and ProjectWise.

Just like Frankfurt, all users who attend will have the chance to get their hands on V8i in the "Test Drive" sessions.

There’s still time to sign up for the remaining Be Seminars in London, Amsterdam, and Paris.

Perhaps i will see you there!
