This functionality is not available in a sharepoint  calendar.
Here's what I usually do:

If users  would like the sharepoint calendar  event to exist in their own
calendar, so that they'll receive a pop up letting them know when it's
time for the meeting, then they can open the item in the sharepoint
calendar, and click the Export event  button. This will put the meeting
in their own calendar, and then they will get the usual Outlook reminder
about the meeting.

No, it won't. You won't receive pop alerts in Outlook for any calendar
but your own personal one. That's why I tell users  to "export event" to
put it in their own calendar  so they'll receive alerts.
