    Let me tell you my opinion – asking a contact info to someone who was just introduced to you is not very polite. I'd prefer to suggest him/her to contact me if he/she thinks it can be useful/interesting for him/her. Just give him/her your contact info but never ask his/her contact info until he/she suggests it to you 🙂
