Is there a way to share calendars across forests other then a federation trust?

We just started a cross-forest migration to move to an internal domain space that we can get certificates for.   We have another domain from a company that we acquired now and our execs want to see each others calendars.  We have a VPN connection and a cross-forest trust setup.   Our domain is not quite ready for user migrations and they are still on Exchange 2003.  I have a lot of work to do for our new domain (policys, security groups, accts, migrations) to get us to where we are ready and plus get them upgraded to 2010 with a cert in order to attempt a federation trust.  I was wondering if anyone knows of a quicker way to have the execs see once another calendars?    I was even thinking of training them on how to send each other a copy of their calendar but not sure if something else would work better...

We have been using the MFG in our org (exchange 2010) and it works nicely, very easy and quick to set it up. I haven't encountered any issue yet.

Other than that, you can try to take a look at this or using Sharepoint

I'm glad someone came forward and said Microsoft Federated Gateways are not hard to set up and that they work nicely..  I had a someone try to scare me away from it and I'm not sure why
