We’ve got a look at the full schedule of Facebook’s IPO roadshow, the event where the social network travels the country and shows off its company to investors and banks in anticipation of going public.

On Monday, Facebook kicked off the roadshow with a lunch in New York City. So far the roadshow has included chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg and chief financial officer David Ebersman playing a pre-recorded video from founder Mark Zuckerburg and making a short presentation to investors. Some investors have reported feeling a little disappointed by the presentations, especially since Zuckerberg showed up to the first event in a hoodie and only spoke for around 10 minutes.

Facebook traveled to Boston on Tuesday for a lunch presentation. Zuckerberg did not attend.

The roadshow is scheduled to continue through May 18, when the company is expected to make its public trading debut. Financial analysis company PrivCo obtained the following full schedule of the roadshow:
