June 5-6, 2018 – Summer SoCal Bentley Bash – Anaheim Convention Center

What is a Bentley Bash?

Archway Systems has been partnering with local Bentley User Groups for over 10 years now to bring you the Bentley Bash in Northern and Southern California. The Bentley Bash is a day (or two!) of 3 hour hands on workshops training you in the latest of Bentley software by experienced Bentley instructors. This training gives you just a taste of what you can do with Bentley software.

Why do we do it?

We love to give you, the users, the opportunity to take low-cost training for a few hours to test out a new product, get a refresher on some things you learned years ago, see how a recent update has changed a product, etc. There are so many reasons that people come to the Bentley Bash and we do them to continue to give you the opportunity not only to continue learning but also to network with other Bentley users in the area.

Schedule and Pricing

This Bash is at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA in conjunction with the AEC Next Technology Expo + Conference. The Bash will be on Tuesday & Wednesday, June 5th-6th, 2018. It is FREE to all and includes admission to the exhibit hall!
