Like last year the registered steel orchestras in this category will proceed to the semi-finals. However, the public will have an opportunity to hear their Panorama selections as they are required to perform on the designated nights in order for their players to qualify for the remittance fee. Because of prior contractual engagements, reigning pan champs Neal & Massy Trinidad All Stars will perform on Saturday 12th January and Caribbean Airlines Invaders on Monday 14th January 2008. Both are in the Conventional Large Band category.
At the close of registration, 79 Conventional Bands and 61 Single Pan Bands were listed to participate in the Preliminary round of competitions (
