One of the interesting thing about Asia is that the large corporations have a bullpen in the lobby for meetings. They have so many vendors calling on them it makes sense. However, there are private rooms, so you can tell where you are in the vendor pecking order by whether you meet in the bullpen or a private room (about 95% of my meetings are in private rooms, but the bullpen is not unheard of for me).
I shot this picture while waiting to be escorted to a private room. Can you tell who the "seller" and "sell-y" are for each meeting? (clicking and looking at the larger res picture helps).
