com) went to a cubicle on behalf of the SRCA at the 2017 Roof Covering China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both participants went to at their own expenditure. On screen were slates from 3 Chinese Hubei District slate quarries (gray, green, and black slates), which the guys had checked out before the Expo.
What we located on this journey was that a lot of Chinese slate is exported, domestic use is very little, as well as expertise about appropriate setup is almost nonexistent. There is a demand for slate roof covering setup training in China as well as possibly a big market for roof slate if trained installers are offered. We also discovered language barrier problems (nearly no person talked English at the Expo), and also although we really did not have anything to market from our cubicle, we did introduce the Chinese to slate roofing systems by means of our screen display screen, which showed about 90 pictures of roofings, devices, SRCA occasions and related subjects in a constant rotation, all day.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Supervisor of Wuhan Longxin Slate Firm, for taking us to the 3 quarries, paying basically every one of the expenditures (he firmly insisted), as well as assisting us out every action of the method. Unfortunately Chen might not go to the Exposition with us.
