IEEE 802 does not have a set pattern.  It does repeat locations over the
short term because of hotel discounts that are obtained for multiple visits
to the same venue.  The pool of places that IEEE 802 goes to is somewhat
smaller than the IETF's pool, but has a similar aim of rotating locations
around the globe.  For 2020-2021, IEEE 802.11, for example, will be meeting
in 11 unique locations over the course of 12 meetings.
