The reception area is typically located within the waiting area or in the front entrance of the business. A reception area is the first area designated to greet the staff, clients, and guests upon arrival. The reception also directs and guides any visitors to the business. The main purpose of the reception area is a welcoming space to receive visitors and wait for their appointment.

In part to the advancing technology communications, many small to medium sized businesses are hiring a live remote receptionist instead of an in-house receptionist. This advancement has led to the elimination of many receptionist jobs.

There are typically two types of reception areas found in businesses. One type of reception area is found in a doctor’s office or outside of CEO’s offices. Visitors arrive to the office individually to wait for their appointment in the waiting area.

Seating for visitors is common in most reception and waiting areas to avoid people standing while they wait. They may even offer access to a public restroom. Several waiting areas may contain newspapers, magazines, televisions, or even vending machines. To boost patience including entertainment is important to help pass the time.
