our history

In 1947, Dr. Nathaniel H. Bronner, Sr. and his brother, Arthur E. Bronner, Sr. (the original Bronner Brothers) with the assistance of their sister, Emma Bronner began teaching cosmetologists at the Butler Street YMCA in Atlanta, Georgia. Subsequently, the first Bronner Bros. Trade Show was born with approximately 300 in attendance.

As Bronner Bros. grew, the show moved from the YMCA to the Royal Peacock Social Club, to the Auburn Avenue Casino, the City Auditorium, to the Hyatt Regency Hotel (for 20 years), to the Marriott Marquis, to the Atlanta Merchandise Mart, and finally to its present venue, the Georgia World Congress Center. The show attracted many well renowned speakers including Jackie Robinson, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Dr. Benjamin Mays. Mr. Bronner combed the country each year to bring positive, motivating people to the show.

Today, Bronner Bros. continues to ascend from its modest beginnings setting for itself new goals, new challenges and new standards of excellence. Bronner Bros. manufactures multicultural hair care products for both retail and professional customers. Some of these product lines include: 

⦿Tropical Roots
⦿BB Naturals and Classic collections

Today, Bronner Bros. continues to ascend from its modest beginnings setting for itself new goals, new challenges and new standards of excellence. Not only will delegates be exposed to dynamics of the world of beauty through hands-on-classes, creative presentations and a very energetic trade floor, we will strive to meet the ever-changing needs of the industry.

Bronner, Sr. and all those who have supported Bronner Bros. from the beginning, our eyes are set on the future, keeping a clear vision, focused path, and a continuing commitment to the community and to excellence.
