In Japan, I’ve heard you have to pay out of your cost center to reserve conference rooms and it helps with this, and with not having people needlessly occupy conference rooms. It’s a win win.

Not only in Japan. I know of at least one big, US based multinational that does exactly that.

There meeting rooms are also tied to the attendees, so that only they can open the door. Disruption goes way down when others can't just grab something from an occupied meeting room.
