com) participated in a booth in behalf of the SRCA at the 2017 Roofing China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both members participated in at their own expenditure. On display screen were slates from three Chinese Hubei District slate quarries (grey, green, as well as black slates), which the males had actually visited before the Exposition.
What we discovered on this journey was that most Chinese slate is exported, domestic use is minimal, as well as knowledge about right installment is almost missing. There is a need for slate roof covering setup training in China and also potentially a big market for roofing slate if educated installers are readily available. We likewise discovered language obstacle issues (virtually nobody spoke English at the Expo), as well as although we really did not have anything to market from our booth, we did present the Chinese to slate roofs via our screen display screen, which showed concerning 90 photos of roofing systems, tools, SRCA occasions and also relevant topics in a constant rotation, all the time.
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 costs (he urged), and also helping us out every step of the method. Sadly Chen might not go to the Exposition with us.
