Hostess Application Form

Ever wonder just what it took to be an official Expo 67 hostess?

Expo Lounge readers can now download and print out their very own copy of an unused Expo 67 application form, complete with original envelope!

interesting that the meter mark on the envelope says that Expo 67's last day will be Oct. 27 1967. Did they change the calendar?

You have a keen eye!

The Bureau Internationale d'Expositions (BIE) have strict rules governing world's fairs.

World exhibitions of the "universal" category are supposed to last exactly 6 months. In this case, it would have been Friday the 27 of October, 1967.

Expo management had to ask for special permission to close on a Sunday: October 29, 1967.

Wow. There are so many questions that have since become incredibly illegal to ask both on an application and during an interview. Height, weight, marital status, physical impairment...
