com) participated in a booth in support of the SRCA at the 2017 Roof China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both participants participated in at their own expense. On display screen were slates from three Chinese Hubei District slate quarries (gray, eco-friendly, and also black slates), which the guys had actually visited prior to the Exposition.
What we discovered on this trip was that many Chinese slate is exported, domestic use is very little, and also expertise regarding right setup is virtually nonexistent. There is a need for slate roof covering setup training in China and potentially a large market for roof covering slate if educated installers are readily available. We likewise discovered language obstacle issues (virtually no person spoke English at the Exposition), and although we really did not have anything to sell from our cubicle, we did present the Chinese to slate roofing systems by means of our screen display screen, which revealed about 90 photos of roofs, devices, SRCA events and related topics in a consistent turning, all the time.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Manager of Wuhan Longxin Slate Business, for taking us to the three quarries, paying virtually every one of the expenses (he firmly insisted), as well as assisting us out every action of the way. However Chen can not participate in the Exposition with us.
