can you call a meeting of world leaders that took place in 1947 a historical event?

Yes, but I suspect the term you are looking for is historic.
An event that is historic is noteworthy.
An event that is historical is simply an event in the past, ie it belongs in history.
So, everything that happened in the past is historical, but not everything is historic.
Also note that, in British English, some insist it should be an historic event (like "an honourable man").
