About 350 new media professionals from around the region are attending a conference this weekend at the Hotel Orrington in Evanston.

The event, called Drupal Camp Chicago, is designed for users of the Drupal content management system, one of several open source software solutions for developing complex websites.

It’s the second meeting this year for content management system pros to be held in Evanston — following CMS Expo last spring. And the CMS Expo folks plan to return to the Orrington for another conference next May.

The spurt of interest in holding such events here has even gotten some on the city’s Economic Development Committee dreaming of how it might lead to Evanston becoming a hub for the new media industry.
