The Glasgow venue revealed it had secured a number of high-profile events including The Big Bang, which comes to the city for the first time.
SECC will also host Creative Clyde, consisting of a showcase from within the city, as well as staff educational conference O2 Guru Forum, which returns to the venue.
Ben Goedegebuure, sales director, SECC, said: "These are great pieces of business for the SECC and a fine endorsement of the venue for hosting major creative brands from within the city and further afield.
"2013 is already looking like a standout year for conferences in Glasgow; we’re adding even more high-profile corporate wins to our excellent association business."
The wins follow the launch of SECC’s new branding, as well as supporting Creative Scotland, a national development agency for the arts, screen and creative industries.
"The Year of Creative Scotland reminded the market how creative our industry can be and how well we host this kind of business," Goedegebuure added.
