Thank you for your question.

A conference venue would be treated as a public place and there is nothing you can do about someone taking a video except elect not to be there.

There is no privacy law that would prevent filming in these circumstances. There would have to be some other reason for objection. See for example, the online report in the case of Campbell v MGN.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
