In 2006, Turkuaz was not only published in print, but was also serving the community through its website.
The website, published as a newsportal, helped Turkuaz quickly become a household name, and the success story inspired thousands of Turkish Expats, with some of them choosing the name for their own company, project or group. Those that struggle in the world of business abroad, felt safe with the name 'Turkuaz'.
Today, many international Turkish companies, countless restaurants around the world and even a "Miss Turkuaz" beauty contest in Europe all share the name Turkuaz, although they are founded after 2002 and are run by independent business owners, unrelated with Turkuaz Magazine.
Published as a community guide for Turkish-Americans in San Francisco, this very first issue was carried at Turkish functions in California and distributed at the ATAA Congress in Washington DC in December 2002.
Distributed nationwide in the US, the last printed issue was the first Turkish-American publication carried at 130 Barnes & Noble and Borders bookstores in 33 states in the US, reaching %70 sales success at 130 prominent bookstores in 2005.
We bring you a list of published content on the lives of Turkish Expats around the world.
Turkuaz is the premier source of community news, celebrity interviews, fashion and lifestyle of International Turks around the world.
The mission of Turkuaz is to provide an ongoing forum in which Turkish Expats can connect, share and inspire one another.
Since its first issue in 2002, Turkuaz has evolved from a community-oriented quarterly in San Francisco, to a cultural publication in the US, and now a digital video-magazine that caters to the collective experience of Turks living abroad.
