com) attended a booth in behalf of the SRCA at the 2017 Roof Covering China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both members went to at their very own cost. On display screen were slates from 3 Chinese Hubei Province slate quarries (grey, environment-friendly, and also black slates), which the men had actually gone to before the Exposition.
What we found on this journey was that many Chinese slate is exported, residential usage is minimal, and also understanding about correct installation is almost missing. There is a need for slate roof setup training in China as well as possibly a large market for roof covering slate if educated installers are readily available. We also located language obstacle issues (virtually nobody talked English at the Expo), as well as although we didn't have anything to sell from our cubicle, we did introduce the Chinese to slate roofs using our screen display, which revealed regarding 90 photos of roofs, devices, SRCA occasions and related topics in a consistent rotation, throughout the day.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Supervisor of Wuhan Longxin Slate Business, for taking us to the 3 quarries, paying virtually all of the expenses (he firmly insisted), as well as helping us out every step of the way. Sadly Chen might not attend the Expo with us.
