While you’re in the larger public spaces (e.g. The hotel lobby, our Vendor Hall), capturing what’s going on around you – in wide shot – is just fine. If, however, you see someone or something (like an artist’s booth) that you’d like to photograph or video in close-up, you need to ask permission. If that person says no, it’s important to respect their wishes.
Taking photos or video in the smaller (or medium sized) spaces, like our panel rooms, are on a case-by-case basis: There is no photography or recording of any kind allowed in our 18+ panels, and there is no recording allowed in rooms that are screening movies or shows. Many other panelists will be happy to let you take photos.
Panelists, performers and programs that do not want photos or videos taken during their program will alert the audience to that preference.
