deter


I guess you mean "defer", which is similar to "postpone", but not the same as extending a meeting.

Thank you, Jl,

another one could be "expand"

eg:
The meeting will be expanded to an hour.

i would still go for

'the meeting will be extended by ten minutes

(rather than."...... for ten minutes.")
