This week a client from another region is visiting my team. We will have a whole-day meeting.
In our last conversation he told me that he would like to take our team to lunch. It's 6-7 persons on the lunch meaning the cost is not insignificant.
However, since he is our client and he is a visitor in our town, is it OK that he takes us for lunch and pays for it?
Should I offer to pay the lunch instead?
I have never been in situations like this and I am not sure what to do. I would not like to offend him by not paying the lunch (if it's expected), but neither to offend him by saying that we will pay the lunch what he had offered first.
