com) attended a cubicle in behalf of the SRCA at the 2017 Roofing China Expo in Guangzhou ("gwon-joe"), China, May, 2017. Both members attended at their own expense. On screen were slates from 3 Chinese Hubei Province slate quarries (gray, green, and black slates), which the guys had checked out prior to the Exposition.
What we found on this trip was that a lot of Chinese slate is exported, residential use is marginal, and also expertise regarding appropriate installation is nearly nonexistent. There is a need for slate roofing installation training in China and possibly a big market for roof slate if trained installers are available. We likewise discovered language obstacle problems (practically no one spoke English at the Exposition), and although we didn't have anything to market from our cubicle, we did present the Chinese to slate roof coverings via our screen display screen, which showed concerning 90 pictures of roof coverings, devices, SRCA events and relevant subjects in a constant rotation, throughout the day.
We are deeply indebted to Chen XinGuo, General Supervisor of Wuhan Longxin Slate Company, for taking us to the 3 quarries, paying virtually every one of the costs (he insisted), and also assisting us out every action of the method. Regrettably Chen could not participate in the Expo with us.
