com) attended a cubicle in support of the SRCA at the 2017 Roof China Exposition in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both participants participated in at their own cost. On display were slates from three Chinese Hubei Province slate quarries (gray, environment-friendly, and also black slates), which the guys had actually checked out prior to the Expo.
What we discovered on this trip was that a lot of Chinese slate is exported, residential usage is marginal, as well as understanding regarding right installment is nearly nonexistent. There is a need for slate roofing system installment training in China and potentially a huge market for roofing slate if educated installers are available. We likewise found language obstacle troubles (practically no person talked English at the Expo), and although we didn't have anything to market from our booth, we did introduce the Chinese to slate roof coverings by means of our screen display screen, which revealed regarding 90 images of roofings, devices, SRCA events as well as relevant subjects in a consistent turning, all day.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Supervisor of Wuhan Longxin Slate Firm, for taking us to the three quarries, paying essentially all of the costs (he urged), and helping us out every step of the means. Sadly Chen might not participate in the Expo with us.
