Each tour will meet at the Harriet Irving Library on the UNB Fredericton Campus.

Participants will visit the locations and hear from staff about what happens in that particular space. Technology Management & Entrepreneurship has organized for students to do a demonstration of a pitch on the tour. The UNB Art Centre will be setting up an event during the tour to give participants a look at how their events and exhibits come together.
