The answer I wanted was the correct one. I believe I now have it. Thanks List.

No, but that's not really the right question, because you've said you've entered as B-2. De minimis non curat lex - if you answer a simple query from your foreign office, no-one is going to care.

If you enter as a visitor for business, i.e. B-1, then the limitations of that category as spelled out in Hira and other caselaw apply.
