What happen if you model meetings as "Events" with the "what", "when", 
"who" views...Let say:
   -for meetings/event, you could reuse lode onto [linkedevents.org/] 
for defining different type of meetings
   -for the "what" view reusing the bibo onto has mentioned
   -for the "when" view with the time onto and any appropriate
   -The "who" view will be attached to the agent, role and organization
   -for the scenes, directions, you could reuse the buildings and room 
onto [http://vocab.deri.ie/rooms]


   Other pointer of interest:
   * The project Documents onto [http://vocab.deri.ie/pdo] at DERI.

I hope this also helps,
