Is the B-1/B-2 the right visa to enter the U.S. to participate in a business meeting? Attend a conference or convention? Negotiate a contract? Yes on the B-1, but no on a B-2 only. If you have a combination B-1/B-2 visa, you should inform the U.S customs officer of the main purpose of your visit. Get admitted in the right classification.

But the B-2 is for tourism and social visits only, with very limited exceptions in special circumstances.
