T.H.E. Show Names 2022-2023 Ambassadors

The Home Entertainment Show launches their Ambassador program to build bridges between T.H.E. Show and the audio community.

T.H.E. Show Ambassadors 2022-2023 are Jiles McCoy and Scott Lylander

The Home Entertainment Show (T.H.E. Show) welcomes Jiles McCoy of Home Theater Fanatics and Scott Lylander of Audio Acoustic Engineering as Ambassadors for T.H.E. Show’s 2022-2023 programming.

T.H.E. Ambassador Program was born following the major transformation T.H.E. Show underwent in 2018-2019 to keep hifi and audio front and center through their social media platforms, VIP events, web series and award winning documentary short film, T.H.E. Human Side.  Ambassadors are tasked with being more than tastemakers, they actively build bridges between T.H.E. Show and the audio community by way of advanced promotion, spreading the mission of T.H.E. Show, working to create a culture of inclusion, education, and inspiration for music lovers of all ages, at all evolutions on their audio journey, hosting T.H.E. Talk, being present at T.H.E. Show, and more.

“Being an Ambassador for the Home Entertainment Show means that I am able to help share T.H.E. Show experience with the world. There is nothing quite like hearing and seeing and feeling new music and equipment. And the Home Entertainment Show is the perfect venue for this experience! We will take a journey together as we explore everything The Home Entertainment Show has to offer.” says McCoy of his Ambassadorship.

“We are delighted that Jiles and Scott have become T.H.E. Ambassadors for the 2022-2023 year. Both have unique and valuable experiences, perspectives and knowledge to share with our community and both are positive minded, mission driven individuals who know how to not only connect with people but to get them excited about hifi, audio, home theater and entertainment and T.H.E. Show is very much looking forward to their ambassadorships with us.”  T.H.E. Show Team 
Attendees and exhibitors of T.H.E. Show will see McCoy and Lylander at T.H.E. Show Long Beach CA, this June 10-12, 2022 connecting with people, creating content, interviewing exhibitors, and more.

      I do not think much of this “ambassador” stuff but if that is what T.H.E. wants to do, fine.

      I will just avoid it should I attend. No offense but intended but I find this sort of thing to be foo-fooish. And no, that does not mean the folk involved are not good, I just do not care for this stuff.
      “…She’s a Trend Setter. It’s her profession.”

      I like music and movies. Equipment brings that to me. I really want to attend so that I can meet some of the people that WRITE for this site. I will think about that now. I must decide whether or not ambassadors are what they say or are they (sc)ambassadors? Hope fully the former. But me?

      “I guess I just wasn’t made for these times”…Dammit!

        I think you’re making too much of this to be honest. Scott is a really good person, and we’re proud to have him as part of the team.

        I’ve met a lot of less than great people in the industry over the past 23 years and Scott falls into the opposite category.

        I don’t see this as becoming trend setters. It’s about building community.

        There will be plenty of great music and equipment and most of us will be there. I certainly will.

    Ian, I have no doubt that you are correct in this instance. Me? I can be quite jaded/suspect of this sort of thing. As my aunties and my mom would say, “Some times a hand shake is just a hand shake and other times, it is still just a hand shake”.

    Building a community is nice. Setting up a clique is not. And of course the latter can exist within the community but they contribute nothing outside their mental masturbation in the round…like I said, “And no, that does not mean the folk involved are not good, I just do not care for this stuff.”

    Scott and Jiles are good people, else wise they would not be a part of this effort.

    My mother and my aunties were right, as are you.
