What is the correct way?

a) To do a meeting

b) To make a meeting

The context: when I want to make a business with someone from the internet I can tell him "I agree to this offer (business) but before, we have to do / make a meeting about the details."


You might do a meeting if you're in Los Angeles

P1: Let's do a meeting after lunch
P2: I don't do meetings

if you attended a meeting

P1: Were you able to make that meeting?

P2: No, I was running late and didn't make the meeting
P2: Yes, I made the meeting


...didn't make it to the meeting
I made it to the meeting

The phrase you are looking for is

have a meeting

We would like to have a meeting to discuss the details
We would like to meet to discuss the details

Both imply a face-to-face meeting.


Might I suggest a few better alternatives :

  • To conduct a meeting.
  • To have a meeting.
  • To hold a meeting.
  • To arrange a meeting.
  • To set up a meeting.
