ILOE Studios prides itself on bringing an elevated tradeshow experience to a niche group of likeminded individuals. Our company has made it our mission to have a meaningful connection with the brands we partner with. We have committed to offering exhibitors and retailers the highest level of customer service possible at each and every event we host.
Made up of several industry professionals, please meet the dynamic individuals behind ILOE:
Before joining the ILOE team in 2015, Jeff studied law at Chapman University. Today, as the CEO of ILOE Studios, Jeff wears many hats, but his top priority is leading the ILOE team to achieve their goals within the industry. He’s a member of the Florida Bar and co-owns a luxury apparel brand with his wife and parents. In his spare time, Jeff enjoys running, hiking, and visiting craft breweries.
Al began his career in luxury outerwear back in 1979 when he followed his dream of building an international business from the ground up. In 2012, Al and Scott Bernstein founded ILOE (International Luxury Outerwear Expo). Throughout the next ten years Al alongside his wife and son would grow ILOE into what it has become today - a home for the better contemporary market. Al’s love for family, people, and his community inspired him to try his hand at law enforcement. After twenty-three years of service with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, he retired with the rank of Reserve Sergeant.
Judy and Al met in 1984 and married one year later. While working two jobs, Judy studied nutrition at Cal State University. She saw the family business growing rapidly and decided her superior organizational skills would be very valuable to various aspects of the business. From student to controller, Judy has been a leader for more than 25 years. In that time she’s also found passions in her family, her German Sheperds, cooking, and gardening.
