com) participated in a cubicle on behalf of the SRCA at the 2017 Roof Covering China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both participants participated in at their very own expense. On screen were slates from three Chinese Hubei Province slate quarries (grey, eco-friendly, and also black slates), which the guys had actually seen prior to the Expo.
What we discovered on this journey was that a lot of Chinese slate is exported, domestic usage is minimal, and also expertise regarding correct installation is virtually missing. There is a requirement for slate roofing installment training in China and potentially a big market for roof slate if educated installers are offered. We also found language barrier issues (practically no person spoke English at the Expo), as well as although we didn't have anything to market from our cubicle, we did introduce the Chinese to slate roofs using our screen display, which showed about 90 images of roofs, tools, SRCA events and also associated subjects in a constant rotation, all the time.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Supervisor of Wuhan Longxin Slate Company, for taking us to the 3 quarries, paying practically all of the expenditures (he urged), and also aiding us out every action of the way. Sadly Chen might not go to the Expo with us.
