It seems that putting a meeting back in the US is really not something
the IETF should do... not until the current problems (virus, <internal

This was the venue originally booked for IETF 108, which was moved online because of the global pandemic [1].  We have chosen to rebook this venue to support the 20 years of significant community effort to bring an IETF meeting to Spain.

We have rebooked this venue as it was either that or pay a significant cancellation fee.
