Individual attendees may or may not know well in advance of a meeting that they will for sure attend.

However, the IETF knows it will, and where and when for years in advance.

Having IETF staff research these thing scales better and affords more lead time - even if the only result is stuff on a meeting wiki page. It still benefits all attendees, and may provide helpful info in the attendees' language(s).

If on-site SIM sales and/or re-form-factoring also happens, great. But even without this, the advance investigation is still very useful.
