Arriving late at someone's seminar is considered rude: both to the audience and especially to the speaker. If you arrive late, enter, take a late-ticket, and then be seated as quietly as possible. At the end the current presentation, you will have to apologize to the speaker and the audience for interrupting their presentation.
