    on our first meeting (при)

    Вчера я разговаривал с потенциальным клиентом и не думая особенно я механически сказал ему:
    "При нашей первой встрече в Москме мы обсудим подробно все эти возможности ".

    Also I noticed that I used при to refer to periods of time in the past!

    "При эпохе Великога Александра ..."

    and when I use conditions

    "При этих обстоятельствах мы не можем помочь Вам"

    Are these constructions correct?
    Чем больше слов, тем меньше они стоят.

    «При эпохе…» sounds wrong to me. I’d say «В эпоху Александра Великого» or «При Александре Великом».
    (Royal nicknames usually follow the name: Иван Грозный, not Грозный Иван.)
