Cowen and Hall of Flowers Announce Partnership

NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cowen, Inc., (NASDAQ:COWN) (“Cowen” or the “Company”) and Hall of Flowers (HOF) today announced a partnership for the upcoming 4th Annual Hall of Flowers event taking place April 1 - 2, 2020 in Palm Springs, CA. Through this partnership, Cowen will receive preferred access to the event and will host a group of its investor clients to experience first-hand, the unique on-the-ground perspective provided by HOF exhibitors. In turn, HOF will receive promotional rights to Cowen’s multi-media coverage of the event for use in its social channels.

Hall of Flowers is a biannual event and the first show of its kind to deliver an experience that elevates the cannabis industry to a new level of cultural significance, and brings together the most innovative brands, retailers and industry insiders to incubate the future of cannabis brands.

In September 2016, Cowen became the first major investment bank and brokerage firm to initiate research coverage of the emerging legal cannabis industry, publishing a 110-page Ahead Of The Curve® Series report incorporating the work of ten senior analysts spanning health care, technology, consumer and Washington policy. Since that time, Cowen has led the financial services industry in its publication of in-depth research and hosting of content-driven industry events aimed at understanding the wide-ranging opportunities and implications presented by the cannabis industry.

“We are excited to once again attend this event and provide our investor clients access to some of the most innovative brands in the cannabis space,” said Vivien Azer, Managing Director and Senior Research Analyst specializing in beverages, tobacco and cannabis sectors for Cowen.
