Local Time module in the Modern Events Calendar can used to let the visitors of your website view your events based on their local timezone.
Modern Events Calendar Local Time Module Options
In order to enable this module, you need to go to MEC Settings > Modules > Local Time and check the “Show event time based on local time of visitor on event page” option.
And this will be the preview of MEC Local Time module in single event page:
Hi there, I have the local time of my events displayed on a shortcode (list view, modern). Everything was working well so far, but now all the events of my list are showing the same time (1am). If I go inside the event itself though the right time is diplayed. I have no idea what happened. All those events are repeating events and I had just set the repetition stop to “never” before I notice this problem. So I don’t know if it came from that. I have tried to remove all my shortcodes and add them again, removed the local time from the shortcode and added it again. I laso tried to change “never” to a fixed date. Nothing worked. I’ve deleted the cache but nothing. Can you please help because it’s a very big issue. Those events are classes for a yoga teacher, she has clients both in France and England that’s why I need to have the local time only displayed and not the event time. Thanks much in advance.
update MEC to the latest version 5.3.0 and try again.

The local time module impacts the grid view in a way that appears confusing. Example: “my-event”, recurring every sunday, start date 19-Apr, end date 19-Apr, time 10:30am – 11:30am. View when local time is disabled:- The grid view shows the event date (19-Apr, 26-Apr etc), but no time. View when local time is enabled:- The grid view shows two dates: the actual event date (19-Apr, 26-Apr etc), and then a local date of 19-Apr on every recurring event, and a local time of 10:30 am. I am not able to get a simple view which shows just the event date (26-Apr), and a event time (10:30am).
Unfortunately, You cannot display the time in this view but I will forward your comment to our development team to check the possibility of adding this feature to our future updates.
regarding local time issues: we will fix it in future updates. thank you for your patience.
When I first started using this plug-in, the time of my events was in my time zone, but now they are not. I think it is due to daylight savings time. I figured this out because I use the countdown clock on my website, and it is off by 1 hour. Now, I have to put my event times in a different time zone for the countdown to work correctly. Can this be fixed?
Hello, Please make sure to use the latest version of the MEC, and check your issue again. if your issue persists yet, please submit a new ticket on this link: https://webnus.net/support/ So, we will get back to you very soon.

Would really be nice if it showed the user’s local time on the calendar page and not just the event page. This is basically worthless.
Hello, I will forward your ticket to our developer team and they’ll surely receive it. If it is possible they will add this feature in the upcoming updates of the Plugin.
