High multiplicity processes are ubiquitous in studies of high energy collider collision processes. While the ingredients and procedure for the calculation of next-to-leading order corrections to such processes is well-known, their practical implementation is still challenging and much efforts is dedicated to making these calculations more tractable. In this contribution we explain the rationale for NLO event files, explain the limitations and trade-offs they entail and illustrate new applications they offer.
