he "Christmas Ostpro" in Erfurt, an annual event taking place in November, represents a unique fusion of commerce, culture, and local history, forming the cornerstone of East German identity and economy. Initiated in 2002, this fair is under the dedicated direction of its organizer, 'Scot Messen & Marketing GmbH.' It embodies a success story that bridges the past and present by celebrating and promoting products from the East. It was originally founded in Berlin in 1991 to provide a new platform for presenting and marketing products from the former GDR that had fallen into oblivion..

Located in the picturesque ega-Park Erfurt, known for its rich botanical diversity and as a cultural landmark of the city, the "Christmas Ostpro" offers an atmospheric backdrop for exhibitors and visitors alike. The park complements the fair's theme with its natural beauty, creating an environment that contributes to the contemplative mood of the Christmas season.

The fair itself is a tribute to the products of the former GDR, bringing their charm and nostalgia to a wider stage. It was established to enable a renaissance for these unique items that had once been forgotten. With an impressive range of products, from traditional foodstuffs to crafts, clothing, and technical devices, the "Christmas Ostpro" highlights the cultural and commercial significance of these items.

A special focus of the fair is on the Christmas theme. Exhibitors offer everything the heart desires to enrich the holiday season: handmade decorations, regional culinary delights, toys, and much more that traditionally characterizes the Christmas period in the new federal states. This thematic focus not only creates a festive atmosphere but also promotes awareness and appreciation for regional specialties.

Over the years, the "Christmas Ostpro" has established itself as a mecca for lovers of Eastern products. By reviving iconic brands and emphasizing authenticity and tradition, the fair has succeeded in becoming a phenomenon of cultural renaissance. It has not only brought many products back to store shelves but also fostered a strong regional consciousness that is invaluable in today's globalized world.

Visitors to the fair have the exclusive opportunity to immerse themselves in a vibrant historical narrative conveyed through the exhibited products and the passionate stories of the exhibitors. As a consumer fair, the "Christmas Ostpro" is accessible to everyone, offering an interactive, enriching experience that goes beyond mere purchasing. It is a place of learning, celebration, and recognition of the cultural treasures that East Germany has to offer.
