com) went to a booth on behalf of the SRCA at the 2017 Roofing System China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both participants went to at their own expenditure. On screen were slates from three Chinese Hubei Province slate quarries (grey, environment-friendly, and black slates), which the men had actually checked out prior to the Expo.

There is a requirement for slate roofing setup training in China and potentially a large market for roof slate if trained installers are readily available. We additionally found language barrier problems (virtually no one spoke English at the Exposition), and also although we didn't have anything to offer from our booth, we did present the Chinese to slate roofing systems via our screen display screen, which revealed regarding 90 photos of roof coverings, tools, SRCA occasions and relevant topics in a continuous turning, all day.
