Problem:
I'm based in the UK and when I added all my Lotusphere seminars to my calendar they quite correctly appeared in US time.
 
However I wanted to print off an itinerary from my Calendar showing the local times for when I was in the States.  To do this I changed my location settings to say that my time zone was CET, printed off the Calendar with the correct times and then reverted to GMT.
 
Solution:
I'm not sure if there's an easier way of doing this, but it got me thinking about adding some sort of "Travel Event" to my Calendar.  So, for example I could state that on a particular date I was traveling from one timezone to another.  Any Calendar entries within that travel period should then appear with their correct times - if that makes sense.  I'd then create another "Travel Event" back to the UK.
 
In other words, by bracketing a bunch of Calendar entries between two "Travel Events" I would be able to see those entries at their correct local times rather than in my actual current timezone.

I used to travel a lot between timezones all the time and this was one of those tricky things to handle.

I found it much easier to handle if I showed my two most used timezones in the calendar, File, User Preferences, International, Calendar (not sure what it is in Notes 8)

That way I would always enter the calendar entries in the correct timezone, so a 5pm meeting in the US would appear as 10pm in the UK, but I could still see the US time by looking at the time scale on the left. This made it much easier when I actually went to the other country and switched the timezone on my PC etc.

In ND8.0.1 they have the capability to have the calendar view and the My Day sidebar plugin show dual timezones. This is a huge time-saver (already) and keeps me from missing meetings when I forget to reset the laptop's clock whilst on the plane.

File -> Preferences -> Calendar and To Do -> Regional Settings -> Display and additional timezone (checkbox).

The label can be what you want...the timezone selected for each, drives the displayed clock.

Hope this helps.
