Who sits where at a meeting?

Meeting Seating

Generally, the chairperson sits at the end of the table farthest from the entrance to the conference room. The seats on either side of him or her are for guests or visitors, or for senior management members or assistants to the chairperson who may help distribute materials or fulfill whatever needs the chairperson has. In most instances, the rest of the seating is open.
