com) went to a booth in behalf of the SRCA at the 2017 Roof Covering China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both participants attended at their very own cost. On screen were slates from 3 Chinese Hubei District slate quarries (gray, green, as well as black slates), which the males had actually visited prior to the Exposition.
What we found on this trip was that the majority of Chinese slate is exported, domestic usage is very little, and also understanding concerning proper installation is virtually missing. There is a demand for slate roofing installment training in China and also possibly a big market for roof slate if educated installers are readily available. We also found language obstacle troubles (practically no one spoke English at the Exposition), and also although we didn't have anything to offer from our cubicle, we did present the Chinese to slate roof coverings using our screen display screen, which showed concerning 90 pictures of roofs, devices, SRCA occasions and also related subjects in a consistent turning, all day.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Manager of Wuhan Longxin Slate Business, for taking us to the three quarries, paying practically every one of the expenses (he insisted), as well as assisting us out every action of the way. Sadly Chen could not participate in the Exposition with us.
