com) participated in a booth in behalf of the SRCA at the 2017 Roofing China Exposition in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both participants attended at their own expense. On display screen were slates from 3 Chinese Hubei Province slate quarries (gray, green, as well as black slates), which the guys had actually gone to before the Exposition.
What we discovered on this journey was that the majority of Chinese slate is exported, domestic usage is minimal, as well as expertise regarding correct installment is nearly missing. There is a demand for slate roofing system installation training in China and potentially a large market for roofing slate if educated installers are offered. We additionally discovered language obstacle issues (virtually no person talked English at the Expo), and also although we didn't have anything to sell from our cubicle, we did introduce the Chinese to slate roofings through our screen display, which revealed regarding 90 images of roofings, devices, SRCA events as well as related topics in a constant rotation, throughout the day.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Manager of Wuhan Longxin Slate Business, for taking us to the three quarries, paying basically all of the expenses (he urged), as well as aiding us out every action of the method. Sadly Chen might not participate in the Expo with us.
