Speaking from my limited experience, there are several aspects to a
face-to-face meeting. One is of course that you're physically together
and eating food together and experiencing a love parade outside the
window together and so on, and that will be missing from an online call.

But, another very important aspect is that there's a full weekend where
everyone has made room in their schedule to focus on just board stuff
which lends import and urgency to what is being said - unlike in a
normal board meeting where one might say "yeah I'll look into that" you
will actually do it together, now. That does make a difference, and that
could well be achieved with a meeting like that.
