    ASP.NET 3.5, VB.NET.

    In ASP.NET, I have a DateTime variable which I assign from an SQL database
    UTC Date field:

    dtFirstMeetingDateTime (e.g. September 30, 2009 3:44:00 PM UTC)

    I need to display this on a webpage in the webuser's format and time. They
    can be anywhere and in any language around the world. E.g., I need to
    display the string:

    "30/09/2009 4:44:00 AM (New Zealand Daylight Time)"

    If anyone can help with the code needed to do this I'd appreciate it a lot.

  2. The easiest way is to show a list of available time zones (TZ) where
    user can select one of them. Another approach could be to use js to
    submit client time to the server where you could define client's TZ.
