(People of) different nationalities

People of different nationalities attended the conference. They met to know one another better and to promote world peace.

A friend of mine told me that 'People of' is not needed, but I think it should. Is she right or am I?

Many thanks.

    But of course it’s necessary!

    Many people attended the conference and they were of different nationalities. Otherwise you might be talking about cheese. Or wine. Or customs. Or national costumes!
