com) went to a cubicle on part of the SRCA at the 2017 Roof China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both members attended at their very own expense. On display were slates from 3 Chinese Hubei Province slate quarries (gray, green, and black slates), which the males had seen before the Exposition.
What we discovered on this trip was that the majority of Chinese slate is exported, domestic usage is marginal, and also expertise concerning right installation is almost nonexistent. There is a requirement for slate roof covering installation training in China and possibly a big market for roof covering slate if educated installers are available. We likewise found language obstacle issues (practically nobody spoke English at the Expo), and also although we didn't have anything to offer from our booth, we did introduce the Chinese to slate roofing systems using our screen display screen, which revealed concerning 90 images of roofs, tools, SRCA occasions and related subjects in a consistent rotation, all day.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Manager of Wuhan Longxin Slate Firm, for taking us to the 3 quarries, paying practically every one of the expenditures (he insisted), and helping us out every step of the method. Unfortunately Chen can not participate in the Expo with us.
