com) went to a booth in behalf of the SRCA at the 2017 Roofing China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both participants went to at their own expense. On screen were slates from three Chinese Hubei District slate quarries (gray, environment-friendly, and black slates), which the males had gone to before the Exposition.
What we found on this journey was that most Chinese slate is exported, domestic usage is minimal, and knowledge regarding appropriate installment is virtually missing. There is a demand for slate roof covering installment training in China as well as potentially a huge market for roof covering slate if educated installers are available. We also found language obstacle troubles (almost nobody spoke English at the Exposition), and although we didn't have anything to offer from our cubicle, we did present the Chinese to slate roofing systems using our screen display, which revealed regarding 90 images of roofings, tools, SRCA occasions as well as associated topics in a consistent rotation, all the time.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Supervisor of Wuhan Longxin Slate Business, for taking us to the 3 quarries, paying practically every one of the expenditures (he firmly insisted), as well as aiding us out every step of the means. Regrettably Chen could not go to the Exposition with us.
