I have a solution that works quite well outside of Org. Apple Calendar supports timezones plus a "floating" option.

I use Org for all my floating events - local to the computer and me, whatever TZ we're in. I haven't found a way to put TZ-specific events into Org.

If scheduling a Skype with someone in NZ, I enter it in iCal at the NZ time in the NZ timezone. Org pulls in my iCal events. Then wherever I am when that event happens, I get the alert at the correct time. Most things are local to me, so I use "floating" and stay in Org.
