com) attended a cubicle in support of the SRCA at the 2017 Roofing China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both participants went to at their very own cost. On display were slates from 3 Chinese Hubei Province slate quarries (gray, eco-friendly, and black slates), which the guys had gone to prior to the Expo.
What we discovered on this journey was that a lot of Chinese slate is exported, residential usage is marginal, as well as expertise concerning appropriate installment is virtually missing. There is a requirement for slate roofing installation training in China and also possibly a large market for roofing slate if educated installers are readily available. We likewise discovered language barrier problems (practically no person talked English at the Exposition), and although we didn't have anything to offer from our cubicle, we did introduce the Chinese to slate roofing systems through our screen display, which revealed regarding 90 images of roofs, tools, SRCA events and associated topics in a consistent turning, all day.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Supervisor of Wuhan Longxin Slate Company, for taking us to the 3 quarries, paying essentially every one of the costs (he insisted), and helping us out every step of the way. However Chen might not go to the Expo with us.
