La Place d'Accueil is the main gate for Expo 67. A huge plaza of 2½ acres is on a middle level, above a bus station which is also used by taxis and the terminals of the Expo-Express and the Trailer Train which connects to Ci du Havre points.On the middle level, and on a third level, are information booths, travel offices, accommodation bureaux, shops, banks, a liquor store, restaurants, snack bars, lounges and a day hotel. There is a direct footway from the plaza to the International Broadcasting Centre. A striking architectural feature of the place is its roof -- in the shape of a huge umbrella. It is made up of seven plexiglass hexagons.
