For the first time in Asia, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) will be organizing the Christkindlmarket in Manila. From December 3-9, 2012, the SM Mall of Asia Ice Skating rink will be transformed into a Christmas village to replicate the original event.

Every year, almost two million people from all over the world visit the Christkindlmarket in Nuremberg, Germany where this tradition of celebrating Christmas first started in 1545. Visitors can buy Christmas items such as pastries, Holiday meats, Gluhwein, sweets, Christmas decorations, candles, and other holiday items from various stalls. While browsing through unique finds, families and friends can enjoy whimsical performances from choirs and bands.

Through Christkindlmarket Manila, the ECCP aims to promote awareness and interest among Filipinos on European traditions and goods by giving them a chance to experience this European Christmas event in the Philippines.

For interested vendors/exhibitors or sponsors, you may contact Kristian Panganiban at 845-1324 loc. 213. For inquiries, you may email at or you may call 845-1324 loc. 248. Website:
