What’s the difference between an event and a meeting? 

We have typically defined the difference as events are “special events” that commemorate, celebrate, raise awareness, etc. they are a ceremony, gala, party, special gathering.

A meeting conducts business or is educational, decisions are made, collaboration occurs, sales are made, is often a regular occurrence, etc. This would include “meetings” of a professional group (a group that requires a paid membership, such as a professional membership organization) as an event and not a meeting. For example, a group of researchers affiliated with a specialty discipline who meet annually or a few times a year would be an event and not a meeting.
