com) attended a booth in behalf of the SRCA at the 2017 Roof Covering China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both participants participated in at their very own expenditure. On display were slates from 3 Chinese Hubei District slate quarries (gray, green, and also black slates), which the men had gone to prior to the Expo.
What we located on this trip was that many Chinese slate is exported, domestic usage is very little, and also knowledge concerning right installation is virtually nonexistent. There is a need for slate roofing installation training in China and possibly a large market for roof covering slate if trained installers are offered. We also found language obstacle troubles (practically no one talked English at the Expo), and also although we didn't have anything to market from our booth, we did present the Chinese to slate roofing systems via our screen display screen, which revealed about 90 images of roofings, tools, SRCA events and also relevant topics in a continuous turning, throughout the day.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Supervisor of Wuhan Longxin Slate Firm, for taking us to the three quarries, paying virtually every one of the expenses (he firmly insisted), as well as helping us out every action of the way. Sadly Chen might not participate in the Expo with us.
