Automotive / Cars & Trucks
French term or phrase: réceptif
This is a company which provides Event Vehicles, and one of the services they provide is:

Création de décors éphémères (recovering, décors de stand,…) ainsi que la gestion du réceptif attaché aux Véhicules Evénementiels.

Who or what is this 'réceptif' exactly? I've tried to research it, but I'm none the wiser right now.

Thank you.

booking service

it sounds to me like it could be the part of the organisation, which takes bookings of the vehicles
