    Decentralized content sharing (DCS) is emerging as an important platform for sharing contents among smart mobile device users, where devices form an ad-hoc network and communicate opportunistically. Existing DCS approaches for tourist spot like scenarios achieve low delivery success rate and high latency as they do not focus on dynamic demand for contents which usually vary considerably with the number of visitors present or occurrence of some influencing events. The amount of available supply also changes because of the nodes leaving the area. Only way to improve content delivery service is to distribute the contents in strategic positions based on dynamic demand and supply. In this paper, we propose a dynamic content distribution (DCD) method considering dynamic demand and supply for contents in tourist spots. Simulation results validate the improvement of the proposed approach.
