MATCH THE HOSTESS WITH THE PAVILION - LIST OF PHOTOS

An event the size of Expo 67 requires reception services of the highest calibre and efficiency. Thus, as early as 1965, a nationwide selection process for hostesses began. Out of that process, 235 young women were chosen. Although fewer in number, young men were also hired: some for reception duties, and a number to man information kiosks. While physical appearance was an important criterion, the hostesses were also selected for their bilingualism, their general knowledge and their personalities. They were true ambassadors, with some having the opportunity to visit different countries to promote Expo. Their distinctive blue uniforms, created by Montreal designer Michel Robichaud, identified them well for all visitors. In addition to the Expo 67 hostesses, other hostesses welcomed visitors to the national and private pavilions from the four corners of the world. It was an extraordinary experience for hundreds of young women!
