com) attended a cubicle on behalf of the SRCA at the 2017 Roofing China Exposition in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both members participated in at their own cost. On screen were slates from 3 Chinese Hubei District slate quarries (gray, green, and also black slates), which the men had actually seen before the Expo.
What we located on this journey was that a lot of Chinese slate is exported, residential use is very little, and also expertise concerning right installation is practically missing. There is a requirement for slate roof covering installation training in China and also possibly a big market for roof covering slate if trained installers are offered. We also located language barrier issues (almost no person talked English at the Expo), and also although we didn't have anything to sell from our cubicle, we did present the Chinese to slate roofings using our screen display, which revealed about 90 photos of roof coverings, devices, SRCA occasions as well as relevant topics in a constant turning, all the time.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Manager of Wuhan Longxin Slate Business, for taking us to the three quarries, paying basically all of the expenses (he insisted), and assisting us out every step of the way. Unfortunately Chen might not go to the Exposition with us.
