Our 2023 Southwest Forest Products Expo Was a h-u-g-e success!

ATPA held its Southwest Forest Products Expo this past August at the Hot Springs Civic and Convention Center, and as has been the case since we started hosting this great event nearly 25 years ago, this amazing indoor equipment and services showcase was a HUGE success. This would not have been possible without the ongoing support of our exhibitors — those who bring their large-scale equipment, technology, and attachments, as well as those profiling the latest in supplies and services. To all of you, please accept our gratitude. You are providing loggers and members of the industry with an exciting and convenient way to view the latest tools for on-the-ground, in-the-field, and in the ledgers success. 



Thanks also to “Buckwild with Bubbarudy” (Levi Spring from Bogue Chitto, Mississippi) who attended the Expo and using his content creation and influencer capabilities helped promote our show across channels in real time. He interviewed exhibitors, narrated some of the features he found cool in the newest equipment releases (“Look, Daddy, they’ve got speakers so you can blast your Spotify”).

Levi’s Buckwild with Bubbarudy videos garner nearly 50k views regularly covering logging, hunting, fishing, and being an outdoors teen. Check out his videos and “like” and share.
