Reunión en la que los participantes estarán sentados


Explanation:
Hola,

Pienso que se trata de una reunión en la que todos participantes estarán sentados "sit down meetings" y que no es "stand down".

Como los que trabajan talando árboles están parados, tal vez se tomarán un descanso al sentarse.

Ojalá te ayude.

Saludos.

reunión de periodo de paro


Explanation:
Además del sentido que dice Cloudy, he encontrado en Babylon la siguiente definición referida a las compañías de aviación:

"stand down = a period of non flying because of poor weather, required maintenance or the like"

Quizá en tu frase sea de aplicación este sentido, pero habría que investigar más en el contexto exacto. Tampoco sé encontrar una expresión más exacta con la definición. Espero que al menos te sirva de guía.
