bamboo4The particle に requires something physical, such as 東京に本店があります,whereas, で requires some activity, such as 東京で会合があります.

 
PaulOBut I'm almost sure you can say 東京に会合があります as well.
に is a placement particle locating a point in time or space, で indicates the domain in which the totality of an event takes place.
 
dctx paul, added as a note above. 
MikiI wouldn't say 東京に会合があります。 But I'd say 東京にて会合があります。 
mhykxMiki, but basically にて and で are the same, right? Or is there a difference? 
MikiIn the case of 東京で会合があります、basically にて and で are the same.
