bpTT has thrown its full support behind the 2024 Panorama.
Mere days after cancelling plans to established a cultural performance space at the Queen’s Park Savannah, due to a recent shooting near the Paddock, bpTT has now announced that it will be the title sponsor for the 2024 Panorama competition as part of its ‘Pan Around D Clock’ initiative.
In an official statement, bpTT says it is pleased to deepen its partnership with Pan Trinbago on the initiative, which seeks to “celebrate the national instrument and the music that fuels this festival, while providing opportunities for the public to experience live performances from some of the nation’s top steelbands.”
“bpTT is excited about becoming the title sponsor for Panorama and welcomes the additional security measures being implemented by the national security agencies to provide a safe Carnival experience,” the organisation said.
“These measures have made it possible for live steelband performances originally envisaged as part of the ‘Pan Around D Clock’ initiative to be made available free to the public on designated days during the Carnival season.”
“The performance space previously planned for opposite our head office has been relocated to the Carnival Village in the Queen’s Park Savannah—making it possible for a bigger and better carnival experience for the public.”
bpTT who is sponsor of the reigning Panorama champions—the bp Renegades and has been aligned with them for several years, says this new collaboration with Pan Trinbago and the ‘Pan Around D Clock’ initiative creates an opportunity to widen its participation in the national cultural celebration that is Panorama.
“The support for Pan Trinbago reflects our confidence in the organization and enables them to create memorable experiences for the public and for visitors to our shores,” bpTT said.
“As we embark on this exciting venture, bpTT reiterates its continued support for pan and the cultural richness it brings to Carnival and the communities in which steelbands reside. We are honored to be a part of the festivities and are confident that ‘Pan Around D Clock’ will resonate with enthusiasts, showcasing the exceptional talent and spirit that defines Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago,” it added.
