What image file size should I use at an Event?

For the most part, the maximum print size you will be printing at events is 6x9". You may occasionally need to print 12x8" but you will very rarely need to print larger than this. Buying photographs at an event is an 'impulse buy' and larger format reprints are rare.

This being the case, the picture files sizes should be small to allow for speedy transfer of images and rapid printing. File sizes should, ideally, be around 2.5 to 3Mb so, depending on your camera, you should be looking at using medium jpeg compression and small/medium file size.
