Temporary Events - File Transmission Procedures

  • An application to securely transmit required event operator reports to the department.
  • Transmits the data electronically without using email.
  • Should be submitted by the event operator rather than participating sellers.


  • Microsoft spreadsheet or database report is preferred, but is not required.
  • A template spreadsheet is available if you do not have information already entered in another format.
  • Be sure all required information is provided within the file because file names are changed during the transmission process.
  • Only files up to 50MB can be accepted. Files larger than 50MB should be zipped or divided into two or more files.
  • See Event Operators for more information on reporting requirements.
