If you really want that and cater for a week in between every one of them, you end up with 25 weeks a year. Consider 5 RIRs each with 2/3 meetings, 3 IETF meetings, 3 ICANNs and an IGF, the schedule would be near to full. And then you still have to fit in all regional meetings, as well as avoid all holidays.

A lot of people use the http://internetmeetings.org calendar to help plan for least-collision.  But yeah, there was a day in February with seven simultaneous meetings in different places.  And there were a half-dozen days last year that peaked at seven simultaneous meetings.  2012 wasn’t so bad, with only a couple of days peaking at 5 simultaneous meetings.  July and August are always the most sparsely-scheduled, but also the most difficult to get people from Europe to attend, since they take holidays those months.
