LAS VEGAS — After nearly 20 years, the famed International Lingerie Show has ceased operations.

In a statement issued to exhibitors, ILS founder Jeff Yunis said, “It is with deep regret that I announce the end of the line for future ILS shows, including the upcoming April show at the Westgate Hotel.

“Of course the new competition was a major factor in my decision but, to tell the truth, at age 75, with many more things I want to do and places I want to visit and family considerations, the timing was right.”

In June, several lingerie vendors announced their non-attendance at the last installment ILS in September. By October, a newly formed Lingerie Industry Association announced plans for the Altitude Lingerie Show, which is slated for April 2-4.

“I have made many friends and have much to be thankful for from past successes. The time has come to spend what I earned,” Yunis said.

By this afternoon, a Facebook post on ILS’ former page said, “As some of you may have heard, the ILS will no longer be producing shows. The staff of Specialty Trade Shows wants to sincerely and profusely thank you all for your support for nearly 2 decades, we sure had some fun! Time to move on to bigger and better things, so keep on the look out for industry news for our future plans.”
