A: 1 is correct. A: 2 is incorrect as it is, but it would be fine if you change 'the coming' to 'this coming'. B: 1 is correct. B: 2 is incorrect.

Either way could be correct, depending on how long ago A made the statements. In both cases, if the time of the meeting has already passed, use the second option. Without context, we cannot properly answer your questions.
