From the Corpus of Contemporary English (COCA), I get 106 sentences with inaugural speech.

 

We believe he will not be making comments about the controversies at his inaugural speech.

When you read second inaugural speeches, they tend to be historically a little more combative.

 

28 concordance lines are retrieved with inauguration speech from the corpus.

 

He's giving his vice presidential inauguration speech again. 

Some believe that his inauguration speech was rambling because of ethanol intoxication. 

 

It is easy to conclude that both ' inaugural speech' and 'inauguration speech' are correct, but the former is more frequently used.

Here are the Top 10 collocates of the word inaugural.

1.inaugural address 584 2.inaugural speech 106 3.inaugural season 105 4.inaugural committee 74 5.inaugural event 65  6.inaugural parade 55  7.inaugural ball 153 8.inaugural exhibition 46         9. inaugural year 41 10. inaugural issue 36

 

Here are the Top 10 collocates of the word inauguration.

1.inauguration day 198 2.inauguration ceremony 39 3.inauguration speech 28 4.inauguration week 8 5.inauguration coverage 7 6.inauguration night 6 7.inauguration event 6 8.inauguration party 5

9. inauguration weekend 3 10. inauguration time 3

 

The corpus data illustrate clearly that 'inaugural + noun' is way more often used than 'inauguration + noun' although the two can be used interchangeably. In general, it is safer to use the former.

 

 As we continue coverage of today's inaugural events, we're talking about this moment in America. 

Now, it's impossible to have a presidential inauguration event that's understated.

 

At 11:30 the inaugural ceremony begins at the Capitol. 

So what can you expect at Obama's inauguration ceremony later this month? 

 

 Now I'll never get to see Mitt's inaugural ball and his first dance with Rafalca. 

 As a matter of fact, he is going to the inauguration ball. 

 

The word inauguration tends to be followed by a noun indicating time like day, week, night and weekend and even here 'inaugural' invariably can replace 'inauguration'.

 

It's Governor Chris Christie's big inauguration day today. 

But on this inaugural day I didn't read past the opening stanza. 

 

 

For Inauguration week only, the museum will be open on Sunday, Jan. 24, from noon to 4 p.m.

Here are the favorable and unfavorable matchups for the inaugural week of the 2015 NFL season. 

 

We are back in Washington this inauguration night.

That brooch was stolen inaugural night and nobody ever brought it to the police. 

 

I obtain 104 results with 'inaugural season' from the corpus, whereas example sentences containing 'inauguration season' are unavailable.

 

Walker wrote and recorded a song for the Texans' inaugural season. 

 

'inaugural' can be collocated with all  types of nouns and here 'inauguration' cannot displace it. For instance, 46 examples with 'inaugural exhibition' are found.

 

More recently, the work was one of a handful of videos selected for the inaugural exhibition at the new Museum of Modern Art in New York. 

 

I fail to find any evidence of 'inauguration exhibition' from the corpus. To be safe, I query a monitor corpus(http://monitorcorpus.com/) and get zero results.

The corpus results demonstrate that 'inaugural meeting' is acceptable while 'inauguration  meeting' is unacceptable.
