Some American conventions have had to make a video about this (so I've heard) to tell the fans that they should bathe more (when I go, I bathe all three days so I don't stink badly) and some have also announced a 'we will ban you if you do stink and haven't bathed' rule.
I've been to tons of American conventions, and have never seen any such video, or heard any such announcement.
It plays at Dragon*Con every year, and has for at least the last five years. It's also in the program book for at least a half-dozen conventions I can think of off the top of my head.
Seriously? Wow...

I've only been to Creation Conventions. I never heard anything like that, nor had any problem with other convention attendees.
