com) attended a booth on part of the SRCA at the 2017 Roof China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both members went to at their own cost. On screen were slates from three Chinese Hubei District slate quarries (grey, environment-friendly, and black slates), which the guys had seen before the Exposition.
What we located on this trip was that a lot of Chinese slate is exported, domestic use is minimal, and expertise about appropriate setup is practically nonexistent. There is a demand for slate roof installment training in China and also possibly a huge market for roofing slate if educated installers are readily available. We also discovered language barrier issues (nearly no one spoke English at the Expo), as well as although we really did not have anything to market from our cubicle, we did introduce the Chinese to slate roofings via our screen display, which showed regarding 90 images of roofing systems, devices, SRCA occasions and also related subjects in a continuous rotation, all the time.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Manager of Wuhan Longxin Slate Firm, for taking us to the three quarries, paying practically every one of the expenses (he insisted), and also aiding us out every action of the method. Unfortunately Chen could not go to the Expo with us.
