com) went to a booth in support of the SRCA at the 2017 Roofing System China Exposition in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both members went to at their own expense. On display were slates from three Chinese Hubei District slate quarries (grey, green, as well as black slates), which the males had gone to before the Expo.
What we located on this journey was that the majority of Chinese slate is exported, domestic use is minimal, as well as understanding concerning right setup is practically nonexistent. There is a demand for slate roof installation training in China as well as potentially a big market for roofing slate if educated installers are available. We likewise located language obstacle issues (nearly no one spoke English at the Expo), as well as although we really did not have anything to offer from our cubicle, we did introduce the Chinese to slate roof coverings using our screen display, which showed concerning 90 photos of roofing systems, devices, SRCA occasions as well as associated subjects in a constant rotation, 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 costs (he firmly insisted), and assisting us out every action of the method. However Chen could not attend the Exposition with us.
