It should be noted that in most cases conferences take place on private
property and the organiser and venue both retain the right to eject people
at their sole discretion. What you're asking for is parameters for that
discretion to replace the existing standard of reasonable necessity.

It isn't that organisers cannot already remove such people, you'd just
like to make sure that they know they can?
