One of our client wants the events from one calendar (calendar A) to show up in another calendar, (calendar B) while still being able to add events to calendar B that won’t show up in calendar A.

Note : Calender A and Calender B are in different site collections.

Thanks in advance

Hi
Best to use workflow that will start on item creation and modification.
Unfortunatelly it is imposible OOB - Sharepoint Designer allows you to copy only within sites. Fortunately on the codeplex there is an activity that allows cross site copiing in SPD. I havn't tried it cross-site collection, but you can give it a try - http://spdactivities.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Copy%20List%20Item%20Extended%20Activity&referringTitle=Home
My company has a workflow product that will allow you to do that in few clicks, it allows cross site collection coping. But it's a commercial solution, so I don't know if you would be interested (starts around $900, has a 30 day trial).
Third option is to code your ovn event handler in Visual Studion.
