com) went to a cubicle on behalf of the SRCA at the 2017 Roofing China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both members participated in at their very own expense. On screen were slates from 3 Chinese Hubei Province slate quarries (grey, eco-friendly, and black slates), which the males had visited before the Expo.
What we located on this trip was that most Chinese slate is exported, residential use is very little, and also understanding about appropriate installment is practically missing. There is a demand for slate roofing setup training in China and possibly a huge market for roof slate if trained installers are available. We likewise located language barrier troubles (nearly no one spoke English at the Expo), as well as although we didn't have anything to offer from our booth, we did present the Chinese to slate roofings through our screen display screen, which showed concerning 90 photos of roof coverings, devices, SRCA occasions and also relevant topics in a continuous rotation, all day.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Supervisor of Wuhan Longxin Slate Business, for taking us to the 3 quarries, paying essentially every one of the expenditures (he firmly insisted), as well as helping us out every action of the method. Unfortunately Chen can not go to the Exposition with us.
