com) attended a booth in support of the SRCA at the 2017 Roofing China Exposition 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 (grey, eco-friendly, and also black slates), which the men had actually gone to before the Exposition.
What we discovered on this trip was that the majority of Chinese slate is exported, residential usage is marginal, and understanding about right installment is nearly nonexistent. There is a demand for slate roof installation training in China and also potentially a huge market for roof covering slate if trained installers are offered. We additionally discovered language barrier troubles (almost nobody talked English at the Exposition), and although we really did not have anything to offer from our cubicle, we did present the Chinese to slate roofing systems by means of our screen display, which showed about 90 pictures of roofs, devices, SRCA events and related subjects in a constant turning, all the time.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Supervisor of Wuhan Longxin Slate Business, for taking us to the three quarries, paying essentially every one of the costs (he insisted), as well as helping us out every action of the way. Unfortunately Chen can not attend the Expo with us.
