I think we can count Open Space as a "meeting" by both definitions 1.
and 2. in your dictionary listing. But it doesn't fit well to me in the
poetic sense. I prefer conference or gathering. Or even better, it is
something that stands alone and apart, as its own sort of thing. So
instead of saying "we're going to the open space meeting", we just say
"we're going to the open space."
In general, my sense of a "meeting" is something where we all meet in
the same place at the same time and talk about the same things, *mostly*
one at a time.
