com) went to a cubicle in support of the SRCA at the 2017 Roof Covering China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both members attended at their own expenditure. On screen were slates from 3 Chinese Hubei District slate quarries (gray, environment-friendly, and also black slates), which the men had visited before the Exposition.
What we found on this journey was that many Chinese slate is exported, residential use is very little, and understanding concerning appropriate setup is almost nonexistent. There is a requirement for slate roof installation training in China and also possibly a huge market for roofing slate if educated installers are readily available. We likewise discovered language barrier troubles (practically no person spoke English at the Exposition), as well as although we really did not have anything to offer from our booth, we did introduce the Chinese to slate roof coverings using our screen display, which showed concerning 90 photos of roofing systems, devices, SRCA events and relevant subjects in a constant turning, throughout the day.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Supervisor of Wuhan Longxin Slate Firm, for taking us to the 3 quarries, paying basically all of the expenditures (he urged), and aiding us out every action of the method.
